Variety Seeks Talented Singers for All-Inclusive Youth Choir

Variety Seeks Talented Singers for All-Inclusive Youth Choir

Variety – The Children’s Charity is calling for singing stars aged 7-18 years to step up and audition for Variety Voices – the charity’s all-star performance group.

Variety Voices is a group scholarship opportunity for 30 talented young people from all walks of life, some able-bodied, some sick, disabled or disadvantaged, brought together by a love of song, dance and musical performance. This is no ordinary choir – think Glee!, think Idol, think X-Factor!

“Variety is fully committed to removing barriers and promoting inclusivity for Kiwi kids, and Variety Voices is a group that really reflects this,” says Lorraine Taylor, CEO, Variety – The Children’s Charity.

“This is an opportunity for young people of all abilities to come together and produce entertaining and inspirational performances, overcoming their personal challenges to bring joy to others. We’re looking for singing stars with energy, vitality, commitment and a love of performing… so if this sounds like you or anyone you know, please come forward!” said Lorraine.

In 2013 Variety Voices performed at many public and private events including a performance with Tami Nielson to an audience of over 1000 people at The Warehouse Supplier Awards and Charity Dinner as well as performances for TV3’s Sticky TV and TV One’s Breakfast Show.
Professional musician and composer James Doy helms the group as Music Director, and in 2014 the group can expect special guest mentors to help develop their talent further.

Auditions for Variety Voices 2014:

Date: 12 February 2014

Time: 4.30pm - 6.30pm (Note: We will let you know by Monday 10 Februarywhat your allocated time slot will be).

Location: TAPAC, 100 Motions Rd, Western Springs, Auckland 1022
