Things seem to finally be returning to a “new” normal since the start of the pandemic. Therefore we would like to invite all choristers to audition for the 2021/2022 NKZN Youth Choir.
Please take note of the following regarding the upcoming choir year:
New structure 2021 - 2022
- Due to the impact or the pandemic, we were forced to adjust the structure of our choir year. Therefore It will run from June 2021 to June 2022. Auditions will take place during the second term and rehearsals will commence In Term 3. Rehearsals will only take place every second Friday and will continue into Term 4. The reason for this is to limit close contact as much as possible.
- We will no longer have a camp In December but instead we will have a workshop for girls and boys separately to learn then of the music. Final rehearsals will then continue in Term 1 of 2022 after which our concert series will start.
Take note that this means that the choir selected in 2021 will only perform in 2022. There might be one or two smaller performances towards the end of this yew, depending on the calendar.
- The website will become an Integral part of the day to day operations of the choir. Monthly statements, payments, transport arrangements and even rehearsal tracks will be available and administered via the website. Therefor each chorister will be required to have access to the website.
We have made these changes for the following reasons:
- A camp in December is a big expense and comes at a financially difficult time of the year. Due to the ever looming risk of Covid 19, we also feel it is best.
- We will not miss performance opportunities with choirs that host concerts earlier in the year.
- Grade 12’s who wish to finish with the Youth Choir and not continue after school, will then finish in June, giving them the opportunity to focus on their upcoming exams.
