The Yallourn Madrigal Singers is a mixed voice (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) community choir, based in the Latrobe Valley.
The repertoire still includes madrigals and folk songs, but has expanded to include a broad range, from medieval troubadour songs,19th and 20th century classical pieces, nostalgic jazz standards and contemporary popular songs and show tunes.
An annual winter warmer concert is held at a local restaurant, presenting a program based around a particular theme.
Christmas concerts are held at the end of the year
Public events performances, including music festivals, eisteddfods and Christmas Carols
Rehearsals are every Thursday evening from 7:30 – 10 p.m. at St. James Church, Grey Street, Traralgon
The choir is not auditioned, although a voice assessment is made by the Music Director to determine voice range, with a six-week probation period. Sight reading is a definite advantage, but not compulsory.
Our singers are grateful for the grant received from Latrobe City, which has enabled the purchase of a new set of "The Oxford book of flexible choral songs."
This collection will help the choir in our planned community performances.
