The Children’s Choir meets every Thursday at 6.30pm during term time in the Drawing Room which is on the ground floor of the Mansion House at Insole Court.
The choir is for children from 6 years of age. No audition is required. Similarly, no previous musical or choir experience is necessary – just a love of singing. The choir explores a diverse range of styles from popular classical via jazz, gospel, rock and musical theatre. The choir is led by Primo Director, Tim Riley who also runs the adult Insole Court Community Choir Tim has a wealth of experience working with young singers including a year at Welsh National Opera as Composer in Residence, Musical Director of National Youth Theatre Wales and has also provided choirs for professional touring productions of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Joseph’ and ‘Whistle Down the Wind’.
Whilst the children will be engaged and absorbed by the music we learn, they will also be develop a strong basic singing techniques with a focus on good posture and breathing. In addition, we always work from music and will receive lots of guidance in the basics of sight singing.
There will be regular and exciting opportunities for choir members to perform. However we are mindful that parents have busy lives and will keep these performance opportunities convenient for parents in terms of duration and within the Cardiff area.
Children wishing to develop their singing further will have the opportunity to take singing exams working in small exam groups (additional cost). These will be starting in the Spring of 2018 and are not compulsory.
Choir is £5 a session and is payable in advance in non-refundable half termly blocks. There is a 20% discount for students who are already weekly Primo Music students or have another family member attending Primo Music.
