Christmas Soloists Concert Program
Christmas Soloists Concert Program
Earlybird: $300 per term / Full cost $325 (Earlybird ends Sept 30 or when class full).
The team at Budding Theatre are excited to launch their inaugural Christmas Soloists Concert program! This will be a magical evening show at 8pm on Sunday 15th December at Belconnen Theatre, offering the opportunity for family, friends and the public to enjoy a free concert featuring angelic singers of various ages performing a range of popular and traditional Christmas songs. Age group? We are more interested in the VOICE, and a range of ages anywhere from 8 to 18 are welcome as the different levels of maturity in voices (from the innocent lightness of childhood to a deeper, more edgy teen vocal) will help us put together a dynamic Christmas concert.
PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP YOUR CHILD/TEEN IF:
* They ENJOY singing and have a big smile when they do! *They are prepared to sing solo in front of 150 guests *They are MOTIVATED to learn new songs and perform a solo (the length will vary - it could be a couple of lines for a very young performer aged 8, or a whole song for an older performer - each performer will give an audition at the first class and will be given opportunities throughout the course to show their learning) *They want to learn technical aspects e.g. how to sing in harmony, read music etc. and are passionate about Christmas songs (both popular songs and traditional hymns)
