For young songbirds looking for a challenge, The Buds A Cappella Choir is looking for talented new members!
The Buds is primarily for secondary-school aged singers, but members up to 25 years of age are welcome to join.
Rehearsing with The Poppies, an experienced a cappella ensemble, the combined choir meets every Thursday to build skills, learn new music and polish our performance repertoire in preparation for concerts.
The Buds have exclusive access to Jessica Joan Graham’s experienced musical direction and award-winning arrangements of contemporary and classic songs.
The choir is designed for singers with existing choral or musical experience, as a cappella is a challenging form and many of the arrangements are in a contemporary style.
Christmas is a busy time for The Buds, as we annually perform in the Ivanhoe Boulevard Festival of Lights. We have a vibrant and beautiful set of Christmas songs that are always enjoyable to sing.
The Buds is a cooperative endeavour. Members are asked to contribute to shared expenses as they arise, such as helping to cover venue hire fees for concerts. Singers also share profits made from concerts and busking.
Rehearsals: Thursdays at 7pm – 9pm, meeting at 6:45pm.
Location: The GPAE tutorial studio at Jessica's home on Elgar Rd, Doncaster.
