Voices from the Trenches Choral Festival will be a captivating musical tribute to the World War One soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in The Somme, France.
Presented by Brisbane’s Voices of Birralee, the festival will unite the community, involving local school choirs to perform stunning music reflecting the WWI era, with modern compositions.
This will include a beautifully poignant and emotionally charged commissioned piece, ensuring the ANZAC legacy is preserved. Voices of Birralee is acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest youth arts organisations. The non-profit choral organisation was successful in a nation-wide bid through the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to provide choral services for ANZAC Centenary events in Europe from 2015-2019. Choristers who have sung in the Somme Valley will describe their discoveries, enhancing the afternoon of emotive story-telling and music.
This project is proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
