Birralee Singers

Who are they?

The Birralee Singers are an exciting and disciplined children's ensemble made up of keen young musicians who love to sing. They range in age from 10 – 13 years (drawn from years five to seven) and participate enthusiastically in local, regional and national events.

 

They sing a wide range of music styles and languages from various parts of the world, but most of all, love celebrating their Aussie heritage by singing new Australian music. 


Highlights of the Birralee Singers program includes performing at a number of Brisbane events, both managed by Voices of Birralee and externally, along with touring every second year. 

 

"A well trained ear...a well trained intelligence...a well trained heart...a well trained hand,"
