The Notations is an ensemble of youth and young adult singers, some of whom are “graduates” of Kids of Note. Directed by Diane Phillips, they perform on their own and also join Kids of Note in concert.
The group began in September of 2009 when some of the older Kids of Note members needed a more age-appropriate group. Diane volunteered to lead them and without that offer, starting The Notations would not have been possible. In the fall of 2014 Diane began to work for our organization under contract, which is a good sign! Our choirs are becoming financially stable and we hope to be around for a long time to come.
The group’s name was chosen in the spring of 2010 after much input from the singers in the new ensemble, as well as members of Kids of Note and all of their families. In the spring of 2015 we launched our own logo, designed by Ian Thayer:
For the 2015-16 season we are thrilled to have Jean Currie join our family as interim director while Diane moves over to work with Kids of Note.
