Manly Children’s Choir

For girls and boys aged 6-12 years, this popular choir is taught by the Director of Sydney Vocal Arts, Margi Coen. It offers a wonderful opportunity for younger children to build performance confidence, gain musical knowledge and to make new friends in a fun and low-pressure environment. Material covered is Disney classics, musical theatre songs, current pop songs and some standard Australian classics. Because the Choir has a number of performance opportunities throughout the year it is particularly good for children who love to sing but are a little too shy to do this in a public arena by themselves.

    Wednesday: 3.45pm-5.15pm
