Expression of Interest Form
– TWO days of Choral Workshops for Upper Primary and Lower Secondary school students –
The Mornington Peninsula Choral Festival is considering encouraging choral singing among young people by offering the opportunity for participants in the Festival to attend two days of quality Choral Workshops facilitated by Kate Sadler, a master singing teacher, choral composer and director.
At this stage we are seeking Expressions of Interest as to whether students and teachers at your school would like to participate in this event.
The proposed venue is the Peninsula Community Theatre in Mornington.
The dates are Friday 18th & Saturday 19th May – 10am – 4pm.
We plan to hold a 4pm concert for families at the end of the two days of workshops and give another performance during the Festival – this may not be the same night as your school performance.
Participating students would therefore need to be committed to taking part in the Festival, performing with their own school choir and also singing with the Choral Workshop Choir in a highlight performance.
Please return your form promptly if your school is interested as this first event will have a limit of around 100 students plus their teachers; we anticipate that it will grow and evolve over years.
The estimated cost per student would be approximately $80 depending on numbers. The fee covers tuition and venue costs, morning and afternoon tea, plus a music folio and performance T shirt for each student.
Music teachers and/or choral directors would obtain a certificate of participation that meets VIT professional development requirements. A student/staff (VIT registered teacher) ratio of 20:1 is required for each school attending.
If you feel that students from your school might be interested in participating in the inaugural Choral Workshops please submit your expression of interest below.
We will fine tune our plans based on your responses and confirm arrangements as soon possible.
