Birralee Kids

Who are they?

The Birralee Kids are in Grade 2 - 4

The Voices of Birralee philosophy wholeheartedly endorses the fact that every child has a song in their heart and that singing is as healthy and natural for a child to do as walking, talking and dancing. The Birralee Kids are a vibrant group of children who are always bursting with a song to sing! They enjoy a wide range of musical styles from traditional folk songs and lullabies, music theatre, classical adaptions to light and humorous selections. They love the challenge of musicianship, singing in parts and learning to read their music. The self esteem of each of the Kids is nurtured as they are encouraged to present their songs enthusiastically and confidently.

They learn the disciplines of performing at special events such as Out of the Box Festival, but at the same time enjoy a relaxed and joyful music making experience. The Birralee Kids are featured on  the Birralee Voices CDs and the beautiful sound of their young voices brings a smile to all who hear them.

The Kids perform at the Cupcake & Cushion Concert (May), The Young Voices Festival (August/September) and the Birralee End of Year Concert (November). 

The main intake for members is at the beginning of each semester however new applicants may apply at other times. Formal auditions are not required, but each child will be invited to an introductory meeting with the conductor where, in a relaxed environment the child can get to know the tutor and visa versa.
