The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra are excited to share with the YAV community the below offer for all of their FOFO (Festival of Orchestra) in November. Some choirs are involved with Carmina Burana, but everyone is welcome to book tickets for any of the shows below. all shows www.aso.com.au/fofo
REFER TO FOLLOWING MESSAGE FROM ASO
To help your friends and family see you in action on the FOFO stage, we’re pleased to share a discount code for 15% off selected reserves at every FOFO show. You are welcome to use the discount for any (and all) of the performances, even if you’re not performing that night. It can be for you to catch another performance, or for your friends and family to watch you the night(s) you are on.
All you need to do is add the promo code FOFOArtist (no spaces) when booking via the ASO website (after selecting a performance but before selecting tickets). You can also book in over the phone or in person at Grainger Studio, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4.30pm. Please note tickets are available in A, B and C Reserves only, are subject to availability, and transaction fees do apply. Some performances are already selling out in some reserves, so we urge you to book soon.
Whereas you are welcome to share the promo code with your friends and family so they can book direct, we just ask that you don’t publically post about the promo code on social media – please circulate discreetly.
Welcome back to Term 4! I can’t believe we are already in October. This year has flown by so quickly. This term will be our busiest yet with three major events and only 8 rehearsals. Attendance at rehearsals is consequently imperative so that we can get our singing to the highest possible quality.
Details of the concerts are as follows:
Young Adelaide Sings – Sunday 31st October at Elder Hall
Repertoire – My Girl, Pure Imagination, Fillimiooriay
As you may have heard, Tracy Shepherd is leaving YAV after 10 years of incredible work in the organisation.
Tracy has been instrumental in improving, creating and updating all our systems. She designed the new website and designed all the systems for both WATU Youth Choir Festivals, in 2015 and 2018 and has coordinated all our Covid plans and has made sure YAV has been compliant throughout the pandemic, an enormous task, given the concerns around singing.
She has very much been the beating heart of this organisation from behind the scenes, and will be terribly missed.
YAV is looking for a part-time Administrator to replace Tracy, and choir community is an ideal place for us to look – we welcome another like-minded person into our team. The application can be investigated through Seek.com Youth Choir Administrator Job in Adelaide – SEEK and applications close on Monday 13 September 2021.
Tracy will be with us until Thursday 16 September before she goes to her new job. We want to thank her so much for the wonderful work she has done at YAV and wish her the very best in her new role.
Young Adelaide Voices is seeking a reliable, self-motivated and organised individual with excellent communication skills, to provide the administration role for its 6 choirs. This is an ideal opportunity for a creative person to manage a flexible part-time position working with South Australia’s leading youth choir school.
The successful applicant will be required to have confidence with a variety of IT applications and be open to liaising with all stakeholders from the YAV community to professional arts organisations.
Community-minded in nature, Young Adelaide Voices welcomes candidates who are excited to work with the choir and its Artistic Director to foster growth and development of young people in youth music and singing. To this end experience in music performance and/or event planning and a demonstrated ability to build effective relationships and partnerships with schools would be an advantage.
We are delighted to welcome our choristers back to rehearsals from this Thursday.
Rehearsals will run for the usual times and include musicianship.
Everyone over the age of 12 will be required to wear a mask while in the building under the current restrictions in SA (unless an exemption has been granted, if you wear a mask at school/Uni you should do so at choir).
Please remember the basics:
don’t come to choir if sick or if you are awaiting a covid test result
social distancing and hand sanitizing
covid check in required by all entering the building unless a chorister as the roll will be taken
