Voices of Birralee is delighted to present the Culture of Peace Concert at 2:00pm on Sunday 30 May 2021. Presenting music through song, a diverse and engaging range of cultural themes and stories will be explored by the 300 strong Voices of Birralee ensembles. The multi-age Voices of Birralee choirs will utilise the universal language of Music to express hope for a more peaceful future built on trust, freedom, human rights and cultural acceptance.

Our special guest, Queensland’s own Katie Noonan, will collaborate with our singers to create an experience of belonging and welcome for all. Alongside Katie as special guest we will also present the world premiere of a commissioned song which will be performed as a massed piece with more than 250 voices. This has been made possible through funding obtained by the Arts Council of Australia. Another feature at this concert will be the Birralee Blokes singing music of the Torres Strait Islands taught to them by Torres Strait Islander Bridget Garay and choral director Kiri Waiata-Green
