KidsinSpires is an exciting opportunity for young children to experience the joy of music and singing in a fun and supportive environment. Directed by renowned conductor Christie Anderson, young singers will have the opportunity to perform at Brisbane City Hall and St John's Cathedral - two of Brisbane's most iconic musical venues. More information on these experiences can be found here.
Throughout the week, children will participate in a range of engaging workshops and rehearsals designed to develop their vocal technique, musical knowledge, and performance skills. They will learn from experienced teachers and industry professionals, and will have the chance to meet other children who share their passion for music.
In addition to the musical program, KidsinSpires also offers a range of fun activities and games, ensuring that the week is both educational and enjoyable. Children will develop their creativity and teamwork skills, building confidence and making lasting friendships along the way.
Join us at QueenslandinSpires 2023 for a fun-filled week of music, friendship, and performance. We can't wait to see you there!
