The Variety Choir is a Youth/Kids Choir and an inclusive group for young people who share a love of singing, music and performing. As well as enhancing members’ personal musical development, the program strives to enrich members’ lives by helping to build self-confidence and create new friendships through sharing the joy of music.
We have witnessed a number of Variety WA Youth Choir kids grow into their voices over the years and build on their self-confidence through their passion for performing. With 12 graduates leaving this year, we feel so proud to have shared in their musical journey.
Singing for self-confidence
Singing is the perfect way to let go and express how you feel. We understand that it’s also natural for many kids to be nervous at the thought of performing in public, but singing in a group can actually help boost your confidence and fire up your self-esteem – and the more you do it, the more confident you’ll feel. Fortunately, we have a fantastic and supportive Choir Director, Melody and her wealth of knowledge.
Singing in your community
Singing is a great communal activity. Singing with other people can help build friendships. Much research has shown that the sense of self-other merging we experience by synchronizing our voices with others is a great way to fast-track social bonding.
When does the Variety WA Youth Choir meet and where?
The Choir rehearses weekly on a Sunday morning at WAAPA throughout the school term and perform at community and corporate shows throughout the year.
What do I need to join the Variety WA Youth Choir?
Other than a love of singing and performing, members are required to have a basic level of singing and to be able to make a regular commitment to attend rehearsals and shows.
