Announcing the GYS Performance Troupe
Starting in the autumn of 2016, a new ensemble, currently being called the Performance Troupe, will start rehearsals for its inaugural season!
Appealing to youth who love to perform, The Troupe will showcase extended musical and artistic skills that exist within the current membership. This could include instrumental skills, song writing, dance, theatre arts, social justice, and arts administration. The focus of the group will be to perform around the community in events that our current family of amazing choirs may not be able to accommodate. PLEASE NOTE: The Troupe will not take away any opportunities from the current choirs, but instead will open up newer unique chances for everyone.
Participation in The Troupe will be based on a successful audition and interview with Artistic Director, Markus Howard. The ensemble is open to any chorister who will be placed in one of the senior choirs (Choir III, SATB or Chamber) in the coming 2016/17 choral season. It is mandatory for anyone considering auditioning to fully participate in the choral season, including festivals and all choir events.
When: Weekly Performance Troupe Rehearsals are Tuesdays from 4-6pm
Where: Guelph Youth Music Centre
How: Auditions can be booked through Cathy Meggison in the GYS office.
