Summer Concert – June 2021
Preparations are well underway for Jambouree’s annual Summer Concert. Despite a whole year without live rehearsal the Jambouree Choir has been supporting its young singers, and the not-so-young too.
Music Director Edna Auld explained, “We look forward hopefully to all of our young choir taking part in their very own summer Concert 2021. They will be supported by Teenah, Shannon and Iona with recordings available for the children to sing along with and learn off by heart.”
“Hopefully by late May or early June we’ll be able to meet, even possibly outside, to rehearse. As yet, no dates have been set for recording, but again we’re looking at Sunday afternoons in June.”
About the choir
Edna Auld formed the Jambouree Choir in 2005 with 18 boys and girls of primary age. Their first engagement was to sing “Highland Cathedral” at the opening of Perth Concert Hall in the presence of HM the Queen.
Rehearsals normally take place in St Leonard-in-the-Fields Church Hall, Marshall Place, Perth, during the school session. The Jambouree Choir (primary aged) meets from 4.45pm-6.10pm; the Jambouree Singers start at 6.20pm. During the present Covid-19 pandemic we are finding inventive new ways of keeping together and making music.
The Jambouree Choir aims to develop self confidence young singers and to provide opportunities for them to perform in concerts alongside experienced singers.
The Jambouree Singers are a well established choir in the Fair City available for Civic and other major functions in Perth and Kinross and across Scotland.
