Whitehorse Primary School is proud to have two flourishing choirs! Bel Canto features students from Grades 1 and 2, and Bella Voce is comprised of students in Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6. Both choirs meet once a week to rehearse and are conducted by classically trained voice teacher Emma Ranson, who teaches vocal, breathing and performance technique, music terminology, musicality and note reading skills. Performance highlights include Grandparents Day, Open Days, Carols Nights, the WPS biannual Twilight Fair and the Whitehorse City Council Spring Festival. The choirs sing a wide variety of repertoire including musical theatre, classic and contemporary pop, folk and traditional songs. Some of our biggest hits include ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from Moana, ‘The Bare Necessities’ from The Jungle Book, songs from the hit musical Matilda (‘Naughty’, ‘School Song’ and ‘When I Grow Up’), ‘Over the Rainbow’, ‘Better When I’m Dancing’ by Meghan Trainor and ‘Count on Me’ by Bruno Mars. Singing in choirs provides a wonderful sense of community for our students and the chance to work together to create something they can be proud of. Together truly is better! Students love to make song suggestions and are passionate about the music we create together!
