This is an Intermediate choir for children who are in P5, 6 & 7.
Rehearsals begin with warm up activities which are carefully chosen to develop children’s voices and to prepare them for the songs they will be singing. In the Junior Choir almost all of the songs are in two-part harmony and children soon become familiar with this concept. The children are given music so that they are learning to follow their part in the music and are becoming more confident with using and reading music (some members of the Senior Choir come along as mentors to help with this).
Throughout rehearsals children are developing their singing, their musicianship, and their knowledge and understanding of music. The importance of the text of the song is always emphasised.
The children are introduced to a diverse range of repertoire and learn songs in at least two different languages each season. In addition to singing in DJC concerts, the children regularly have the opportunity to sing in Dunfermline Choral Union’s Christmas Concert.
Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 4:30pm to 5:30pm.
