A group of fundraising singers visited a North Albury school on Wednesday to meet the children they’re supporting.
Music is equal for everybody; it meets all needs and all agesCharmaine Borchert
Wewak Street School will benefit from Border Choral Voice, a weekend of choir workshops, concerts and masterclasses on August 18 and 19.
Jonathon Welch, the artistic director of the Choir of Hard Knocks, will lead the event, which is a Rotary Club of Albury North project to be held at SS&A Albury.
Border Choral Voice committee member Anne Hayward said Welch had agreed to sing as well as conduct.
“It’s exciting news,” she said, encouraging people to get involved.
“As a choir, it’s an opportunity to actually be in a masterclass and have Jonathon Welch mentor you.”
The musical event will assist a musical cause, Wewak Street School’s Music-Ability program.
Relieving principal Charmaine Borchert said the children responded well to music and movement.
“Music is equal for everybody,” she said.
“Anybody can make the noise or touch an instrument and it doesn’t rest on whether you can speak words, it rests on whether you’re wiling to participate.
“It meets all needs and all ages.”
