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 the new Variety Voices singing performance group.

Variety Voices will be a unique group of approximately 30 young New Zealand performers, some able-bodied, some sick, disabled or disadvantaged, brought together by a love of song, dance and musical performance. But 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, so what better way to celebrate our work in New Zealand over the last 21 years than with the launch of this new group scholarship initiative,” 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, even if it’s only in front of the mirror at the moment!”

Variety has engaged professional musician, musical director and composer James Doy as Music Director for Variety Voices. The group will perform at various corporate, community and charity events, producing a high-quality professional level of performance.

Variety is holding auditions for Variety Voices on Wednesday, 25 May at 4pm at Westpoint Performing Arts Centre / Auckland Music Theatre, 190 Meola Road, Pt Chevalier, Auckland.
