There are no auditions for membership, so if you can hold a tune and enjoy singing in parts you are most welcome to join the choir.
There are no auditions for membership, so if you can hold a tune and enjoy singing in parts you are most welcome to join the choir. You do not need to read music, but you do need to be able to hold a part. There is a $5.00 annual membership fee, with an annual tuition fee currently set at $300.00. This is paid annually or per term (click to download a copy of the Tuition Fees). The fees help us purchase sheet music and help defray other running costs. New members pay a one-off joining fee of $10.00 for a YVS name badge.
We will want you to come along to rehearsals, and have a wonderful record of high attendance! These are the Day & Evening Choir times.
Daytime Choir - Tuesdays from 10.00am to 12.00 noon at Montrose Town Centre, 935 Mount Dandenong Road, Montrose
Main Choir - Wednesday evenings from 730:pm to 9:30pm at Senior Citizens Club Hall, Hardy Street, Lilydale. Arrive by 7:15pm vocal warm-ups at 7:30pm.
There is plenty of off-street parking at the venues. There are several breaks during the year, determined by the Committee. Occasionally we perform jointly with other choirs, which necessitates a few extra rehearsals close to the performance date. We give plenty of notice about this and ensure everyone can get to the venue.
Rehearsals are fun, engaging and energising. A very real benefit is that our vocal skills improve over the years through being challenged to go that little bit further.
We have an extensive Library which is very capably managed by Don Box, and are happy to make arrangements to hire music to other Choirs.
