Our calendar of rehearsals, concerts and social events has been updated on the website – please check frequently for updates. Our summer production, on 23rd and 24th June (tbc) will be Joseph and the Amazing Tecnicolour Dreamcoat.
Already this term we have seen the Jambouree Cabaret Singers entertaining at the traditional Burns Supper in Pitlochry Festival Theatre – once again a sell-out evening.
A Vocal Masterclass, by international Dutch Tenor Amand Hekkers, was given on Saturday 11 February in St Leonard’s Church Hall (entrance James Street) Price £5 for non members of Jambouree including tea and biscuits. Amand was Liam’s teacher last academic year and Kenneth had lessons with him too. Amand worked with several of the Jambouree Cabaret Singers and former students from the Conservatoire.
We are very excited that six of our boys and seven of our girls will appear in the English Touring Opera production of Tosca during the Perth Festival of the Arts on 18th May in the Concert Hall.
Our weekly rehearsals will continue in the Elim Pentecostal Church on Thursdays at 4.45pm PROMPT ending at 6.15 for all members of the Choir and Cabaret Singers. The Cabaret Singers only rehearsal will take place after that and end around 7.30pm. Cabaret Singers are expected to assist with support for younger singers, and setting a good example to them in both demonstrating good singing and behaviour as part of a choir. Please ensure that folders are brought to rehearsals each week to keep words and music.
Biscuits will be provided at rehearsal, and members can bring water with them.
Looking forward to another good season of singing.
