Hello friends!

We are back in the office and bursting at the seams with preparations for Adelaide Fringe events taking place over the next six weeks. Have a read below and make a note in your diaries about our fantastic forthcoming Fringe exhibition Small Things, also Hallelujah Handel, a collaborative Fringe performance with the Adelaide Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, and Tutti's exciting Info Evening for participants and supporters. Also coming up in May is The Square, a new creative work by the Tutti Performing Arts Ensemble.

At the end of 2012 Tutti was successful in achieving Arts SA funding towards the presentation of Their Shadows in Us, a major exhibition at the Flinders City Gallery which will run from December 2013 - February 2014. The exhibition will be curated by Melanie Fulton and feature the work of Tutti Visual Artists working with well known South Australian artist Laura Wills. The catalogue will be written by Catherine Murphy. The exhibition is the result of a three year research project by Laura, Catherine and Tutti artists Aimee Crathern, Jane Hewitt, Dougie Jacobssen, Jackie Saunders and Michelle Hall into the lives of disabled residents who came to live at Minda as young children between 1930 and 1980.

All of the above projects celebrate the richness and diversity of Tutti's work and 2013 promises to be a significant year for our organisation. You can stay up to date with all projects via our facebook page, Twitter and website and we hope you will come along to many!

Small Things

Do not miss Tutti's magical Fringe exhibition Small Things at the Bay Discovery Centre's gorgeous Mezzanine Gallery. Curated by Patricia Wozniak the works made by artists for this show are exquisite treasures each of which in the words of Arundhati Roy “pursues beauty to its lair”. Small Things will be opened by Adelaide Arts identity Jack Condous and Tutti Visual Artist Jenna May at 6pm on the evening of February 7th and you are all welcome. This exhibition is an absolutely fabulous opportunity to glimpse the range and quality of work being produced by artists in the Tutti Studios.

Hallelujah Handel!

On the weekend of March 16th - 17th, the Poco Tutti Choir combines with Adelaide's own Dr Kevin Cameron and the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra for four thrilling performances of 'Hallelujah Handel' for the Adelaide Fringe. Performances will be in the afternoons at Woodville Town Hall and Campbelltown Function Centre. For more information and tickets go to

Tutti Kids

Happy New Year to all of the Tutti Kids families. I trust that you all had a relaxing break and are rearing to start a new year of Tutti Kids. All groups begin in week two (week commencing February 4th) to give everyone a week to acclimatise to their school routine.

We have an exciting year ahead with the TciK (Tutti Creative Intelligent Kids) new media program. TciK is moving to the Hove group this term and I'm sure Nikki's group will have a great time experimenting with the iPads. All groups will eventually experience this great program and we will have a screening mid-year to share our work with family, friends and the Department of Education and Childhood Development.

A big thank you to all parents who took the time to complete our online survey. Your feedback is integral to the continued development and improvement of our program. If you did not get a chance to fill out the survey and would like to share your thoughts on Tutti Kids, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to call or drop me an email anytime.

We currently have limited vacancies in our Hove, Mitcham and Belair groups. Please contact me if you or somebody you know may be interested.

I look forward to another exciting year with Tutti Kids.

Abby Witts, Tutti Kids Coordinator

Tutti Choral Program

The whole Tutti Choral Program, which includes the main Tutti Choir, Poco Tutti, Hot Tutti and Club Tutti, was joined by The Gathering Wave Choir from Mt. Barker to stage our best ever Christmas Concert in Norwood. Musically directed by Richard Chew and Laura Ellis and utilizing the magnificent pipe organ in the Wesley Uniting Church, this concert was an inspiration to all who participated and attended.
Thanks to each of you. Thanks to all of you. Thanks for everything.
For another beautiful Christmas Concert!  Beautiful venue!
Christmas has not begun until we have been to the TUTTI Concert

As the sun goes down the streets will light up, and the entire city will explode with an all night celebration of everything Fringe. At the centre of the party will be the iconic Fringe Parade. Join the crowds to welcome the spectacle of brilliant floats and thousands of Fringe artists as they 'strut their stuff' through the centre of the city. King William Street will be truly transformed into the world's largest dance floor as DJ TR!P cranks up the volume.

The Parade is starting at 8.30pm. Look out for the disability float featuring artists from Tutti, Restless, No Strings Attached, Company @ and others. Make sure you get there early to enjoy the pre-parade entertainment from 7pm.
