Mixed upper voices
The Intermediate choir takes children from aged 7 and aims to develop their vocal and musical skills through an interesting and varied repertoire. Fun warm-up activities focus the children and teach them valuable skills for singing in a choir. The choir sings in up to three parts with some more challenging repertoire for the older members. Sessions also include singing games to build confidence, provide opportunities for solo singing and to keep rehearsals fun!
The Intermediates sing in at least 3 public concerts a year and have also made recordings for SingUp. Children are also given the chance to take part in a workshop in the summer half-term, culminating in a full-staged musical.
A small group of the older and most committed children in Intermediates are selected to take part in an After Class. This helps to prepare them for the transition into Senior Choir, improving their theory and sight-reading skills.
The Intermediate Choir is an unauditioned group and we welcome new singers on selected dates throughout the year. If you would like to join please contact our membership secretary via the Join FCMG contact form.
Upcoming Intermediate Choir Concerts
FCMG is 60 years old this year! To celebrate we are bringing three of our choirs together along with a choir made up of our Alumni for a concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. We will be singing singing favourites by Britten, Holst and Tippett along with three new works written to mark the occasion.
