GRAND THEATRE LAUNCH NEW CHOIRS!

Published : 17/Jul/2015

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre will be re-launching its choirs in September 2015, and they will be based at the Theatre with lots of exciting opportunities for members. It is a brilliant chance for individuals who have a passion for singing and theatre to share their passion with like minded individuals and to work with professional, high quality vocal coaches and industry professionals.

The choirs will work alongside professional practitioners, to build a wide variety of repertoire in different musical genres and to improve vocal practice. Both choirs will be provided with an array of opportunities to perform both independently and alongside professional performers at a variety of venues including our very own Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. The choirs will be brand ambassadors for the theatre and through their performances will aim to fundraise on behalf of the theatre. Any money fundraised by the choir will go back into the theatre’s Creative Learning department to develop the choirs and other additional Creative Learning projects.

To coincide with the re-launch of our choirs they have been given new names and will receive exciting new branding.

The Encore Young Vocalists will be a fun, engaging choir for children aged 9-15 to develop their passion for singing and their performance skills. It will provide members with the chance to improve vocal practice across a variety of musical genres, whilst making new friends and building confidence both on and off stage. All new members will be required to audition to be part of The Encore Young Vocalists.

 

Rehearsal time: Saturday mornings, 10.30am-11.30am

Rehearsal location: Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

Autumn 2015 term rehearsal cost: £96 (13 weekly sessions - £8 per session, including FREE first session)

 

The Grand Chorus will be a fun, vocally challenging choir for adults aged 16+ to develop their passion for singing in a friendly, professional environment. It will provide members with the chance to learn choral music across a variety of musical genres, whilst making new friends and developing their vocal skills.

 

Rehearsal time: Monday evenings, 7pm-8pm

Rehearsal location: Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

Autumn 2015 term rehearsal cost: £120 (13 weekly sessions - £10 per session, including FREE first session)
