Music

JUNIOR CHOIR

The junior choir consists of students from year two to year four.  Each term our members learn a variety of children’s songs that engage them mentally, physically and emotionally.  They are introduced to music through a fun learning experience that is designed to give them a life love of music.  Year one students are able to join this choir at the end of term two after a successful audition.

 

BOYS CHOIR

Our boys’ choir consisting of year two to year seven children is a thirty minute session full of energetic singing and laughter.  They enjoy having an all-boys group who gain confidence quickly and become very enthusiastic about choral singing as they progress.

 

SENIOR CHOIR                                 

The senior choir comprises of students from year five, six and seven.  Repertoire in this choir is more complex, introducing part work and harmony.  The students have a greater input into what music is chosen and how to achieve the best performance.

GRANDPARENT CONCERT

Mitchelton’s Grandparent concert is a wonderful annual event that takes place in school time during second term.  Every child in the school including Prep plus all three choirs will perform on stage.  Each year this introduction of stage performing encourages budding young choristers to join the school choirs.

 

CHOIR TOUR

Each year, the choir’s tour suburbs close to Mitchelton.  They visit either retirement homes or child care centres to perform a variety of music that they have learnt that year.  Choir tours not only treat our audiences with a wonderful concert, but also develops confidence, tolerance, discipline and satisfaction within its members.

WOODWIND, BRASS AND PERCUSSION PROGRAM

Children in years 4, 5 and 6 at Mitchelton State School are eligible to learn flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French Horn, trombone, percussion (drums and tuned instruments) and glockenspiel.  Students who take part in the instrumental program receive free tuition from the visiting instrumental music teachers for 30 minutes each week during school time.  Our excellent band program includes such things as : a beginner music camp,  an advanced music camp, a band tour and being part of our school BAM festival.

Mitchelton’s Books, art and music festival is a wonderful experience not to be missed, held annually during the month of August.  The musical component involves an enjoyable evening concert with our choirs, string orchestra and band.  They present a performance of repertoire studied throughout the term.
