Senior Choirhttp://www.stpetersrochedale.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Choir-Performance.aspxSenior Choir<p style="text-align:justify;"></p><p>The St Peter's Senior Choir is open to students in year three through to year six. For 2019 we are planning to rehearse at 8am in the morning until the commencement of school. The choir is open to all students with an interest in singing, voice or instrument lessons are not a requirement. The choir supports many events within the school, the parish and also participates in The Queensland Catholic Schools and Music Festival  and other community events throughout the year.</p><p>Singing in a choir can help children to extend their music knowledge and experience. Singing helps children  to have a voice, to work as a team and to express feelings and emotions through song. Please encourage your children to consider the commitment to become a member of the St Peter's School Senior Choir. Mrs Flood, the music specialist is the director of the group and encourages students to attend all rehearsals and to experience a range of performance opportunities.<br></p><p>Our first rehearsal will take place on Monday, February 11th at 8am in the school hall. Please come along to  express interest and some paperwork will be distributed following this.<br></p><p><br><br></p>
