Vocal Ensemble

The Manly Vocal Ensemble is open to all students and provides an opportunity to engage in a love of performing contrasting repetoire while developing sight singing skills. (Tides of Sound is a smaller ensemble, comprised of members of the Vocal Ensemble who audition for the group.)

The Ensemble performs at events both at school and within the community, participating at events like the Creative Arts Night in Term 3 and the Northern Beaches Eisteddfod in Term 2, where this year the Vocal Ensemble and the smaller group, Tides of Sound, each won their section.

On December  31st  2015, members of the Vocal Ensemble, along with a small string quintet and guitar ensemble from Freshwater Campus, will tour Spain and Paris. The vocal ensemble members rehearse twice a week, preparing both Australian and European repertoire for the 18 day tour. Highlights include performing at the Cabalgata festival in Spain and having fun with friends at Disneyland Paris.

Members are not required to audition, however, once joined, students are expected to attend all rehearsals. The Vocal Ensemble rehearses Monday lunch in room 132.

For further information please contact Ms Lucienne Howard in the Creative Arts staffroom.
