Moorambilla Voices encourages everyone to sing, in particular primary children! That is why within this ensemble we have merged Year 3 boys and girls! This age group when together creates an incredibly exciting and powerful musical instrument.
Each year this ensemble co-create works that celebrate not only their unique capacity, but also the rich cultural heritage of the region. When together, they create performances that celebrate their sense of self, their friendship, their communities and their outstanding intellect.
There will be up to ‘80’ places offered on merit each year in the Moorambilla Voices Birralii Choir with the opportunity to tour, record and perform. Following the Skills Development Workshop Tour, talented girls and boys will be offered a place in the choir and the chance to participate in the Baradine Residency Camps, Dubbo camp and Gala Performances, Tours or Concerts and Recordings throughout the year. We work hard to ensure that any child who is offered a place is supported financially to do so through our policies of inclusion and equity!
The choirs meet for two residency camps, one in August in Baradine and one in September in Dubbo for the Gala Concerts. At these camps, students will work alongside leading composers, musicians, artists and choreographers to engage in challenging new learning experiences and collaboratively create repertoire for performances. They will develop skills in:
Choral singing and repertoire
Music theory and sight-singing
Movement and dance
Creativity in other artistic mediums, like visual arts
Self-discipline and concentration
Performing as part of an ensemble
If you have been selected to take part, congratulations! You are about to experience the magic of Moorambilla!
