Variety seeks talented singers for all-inclusive youth choir

Variety - The Children's Charity is calling for singing stars aged 7-18 years to step up and audition for the new Variety Voices singing performance group.

Variety Voices will be a unique group of approximately 30 young New Zealand performers, some able-bodied, some sick, disabled or disadvantaged, brought together by a love of song, dance and musical performance. But this is no ordinary choir - think Glee!, think Idol, think X-Factor!

In 2012 Variety Voices performed at more than 10 events, including performing to 800 people with Elizabeth Marvelly at The Warehouse Supplier and Awards Dinner, a performance at The InterAct Festival, the Roger Waters concert, and The New Zealand Women's Weekly 80th Anniversary event.

Variety has engaged professional musician, musical director and composer James Doy as Music Director for Variety Voices. The group will perform at various corporate, community and charity events, producing a high-quality professional level of performance.

2012 Variety Voices member, Megan Riegel, says joining the choir was the best decision she ever made.

 "I really like Variety because it is one of the only charities in New Zealand that focusses on helping children and kids that don't get the same opportunities as other kids due to poverty and disadvantages in life."
