PCC - Primary Concert Choir

The ACT Instrumental Music Program is seeking students from Year 4 to Year 6 to audition for our vocal ensemble, the Primary Concert Choir (PCC). The PCC will rehearse on Thursday afternoons from 4.30pm till 5.30pm during school terms at the IMP in Kaleen. The Primary Concert Choir is conducted by Katharine Finlayson. The choir is an extension opportunity for students in ACT Education Directorate schools and it is expected that members of the PCC will also participate in the choir or vocal ensemble at their school if this opportunity is available.

The Primary Concert Choir will have several performance opportunities throughout the year and plenty of notice will be given for any performance commitments.

The choir is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic and talented young singers to work together in a supportive and fun environment. Membership in the PCC is for one year. Students will be required to audition each year for the choir.

Students in the PCC will have the opportunity to develop their skills in musicianship, breathing, phrasing, vocal production and performance while learning a range of repertoire, including harmony parts. It is not necessary for members of the choir to be having private singing lessons.

The choir has been invited to perform in high profile events such as the nationally televised Australia vs New Zealand Brumbies game, Parliament House Open Day, the National Eisteddfod, Step Into the Limelight, Wattle Day Citizenship Ceremony and IMP Concerts.

The PCC is a performance ensemble and the families of children auditioning will need to be prepared to make a strong commitment to rehearsal and performance attendance for the year.

The cost for membership in the PCC is $100. There will be an additional charge  for the PCC T Shirt ordered through IMP and students will be required to wear black pants and black shoes for performances.
