“Choosing and creating new repertoire”

Presenting: Emma Borgas, Robyn Habel and Annie Kwok

Music reading session

“Repertoire options and approach for choirs of various ages”

presented by Emma Borgas and Robyn Habel.


Are you looking for some inspiration for your choir to kick off the year? If so, you’re not going to want to miss this amazing PD opportunity!

Emma (secondary school student focus) and Robyn (middle school student focus) will run a session each from 9.00-10.30. Choose a session that will suit your needs, actually read through scores with our presenters and learn some ’tricks of the trade’ to help teach your choirs.


Emma Borgas currently works as a music teacher at Brighton High School, one of Adelaide’s leading special interest music schools. She studied a Bachelor of Music at the University of Adelaide, sings as a soprano with the Adelaide Chamber Singers, has been a conductor with Young Adelaide Voices and was a former music teacher at Marryatville High School. Emma has a wealth of experience selecting music for upper school students.


Robyn Habel is well known in South Australian schools for her song-writing workshops and her songs that have been commissioned for the Festival of Music and for various schools in South Australia. She works brilliantly with young people and creates a variety of works that resonate really well with both performers and audiences.


Robyn is putting together a book of songs for schools that focus on graduation, the movement of students from one level to the next, (not necessarily only related to year 12), so you will be the first to see what she has to offer.


10.30-11.00 – morning tea (provided)

We’d like to encourage participants to bring your own coffee cup for morning teato help do our little bit towards reducing waste.


Annie Kwok talks …

“Creating connection –

How to commission and how a composer can write for your choir.”


Annie Kwok is a first generation Chinese-Vietnamese Australian, and had the honour of being the first female in her generation to receive a full education. “Pretty amazing, from where I stand!” says Annie.  She holds a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance, a Graduate Bachelor of Education in Secondary Arts, and is currently working on her Master of Education, researching the importance of creativity, imagination, and play in music education. She is a full-time secondary classroom music teacher and has taught at Brighton Secondary School and the Conservatorium High School in Sydney. At the moment Annie is teaching Year 6-12 Music at Pulteney Grammar School in Adelaide. She has worked with Young Adelaide Voices, the Sydney Children’s Choir, Gondwana Voices, and the South Australian Public Primary Schools Festival of Music. 


From 11.00-12.30 listen to Annie talk about how to go about commissioning a composer. As an educator, conductor and composer, Annie will be breaking down the commissioning process, talking about how rewarding it is and what composers and conductors can do to create a connection.
