Following the success of our Men of Song Male Voice Festival, Bunbury Men of Song are launching a choir specifically for school aged boys.
Bunbury Men of Song is a prestigious and respected performing group that was established in 1998. Bunbury Men of Song has always fostered an intergenerational approach to our activities and are proud of the fact that the age range of our members is from 20 – 87 with some father-son combinations. We now wish to expand our age range by establishing a dedicated group for boys, who will be able to move into the adult choir at the appropriate time if they wish.
BMOS Boys will aim to foster excellence in singing within an enjoyable and educational setting. We believe that strengthening this art form to provide a forum for men and boys to sing together will help to encourage their participation in music, foster a sense of team work and accomplishment, and in doing so strengthen our community. It will also be of benefit to the boys by rounding out their cultural education and providing links with mature mentors.
BMOS Boys will operate out of school hours and is open to any school aged boy from the Greater Bunbury area. The director of this inaugural choir is Mr Ian Mills, who also directs Bunbury Men of Song. Members will be selected through an audition process. As well as being keen and talented singers, members are expected to display dedication and commitment for the duration of their membership.
BMOS Boys will rehearse on Tuesday afternoons from 4pm to 5pm at St Augustine’s Uniting Church, 119 Mangles Street Bunbury.
