Haddo Voices youth choirs are looking for local children who enjoy singing to join up over the next two weeks. To help in the recruitment drive, Musical Director Alice Dennis has been singing Disney songs with children in the primary schools in the area and has been delighted with the response from them.
‘It’s been wonderful to see the kids throwing themselves into the likes of ‘the Bear Necessities’ and ‘Bibbidy Bobbidy Boo’. It makes you realize just how much fun the kids have singing, but its also very good for them. I notice kids at the Voices choirs have improving concentration levels and also their reading comes on leaps and bounds, as they read the lyrics along with singing. Also singing is extremely important for developing the musical ear – all kids who have musical aspirations should really sing in a choir’.
Haddo Boy’s Voices has a few keen members, all of whom are lively and enthusiastic but they would love some more members to join up to help them out. They cater for boys in P6 – S6 with voices broken and unbroken.
The Haddo Children’s Voices cater for kids in P1 – P5 and the Haddo Girls Voices are for girls P6 –S6.
The three choirs are starting rehearsals next week (17th September) in Ellon at different venues on different nights. It costs £30 for the whole year with discounts for families and those on benefits.
