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
The Intermediate Choir will join members of the Bach Choir for the inaugural Highgate Tommy’s Children’s Carols, a candlelit concert filled with beautiful music, festive stories and Christmas treats for all the family.
Ticket sales will raise funds for Tommy’s vital work to support every parent through pregnancy and birth, funding essential and life changing research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. It seems fitting that the children at the centre of this carol service, the parents of tomorrow, are the ones who will benefit from the work Tommy’s does.
