Boite Schools Chorus: Dhungala Choral Connection Songbook

  • Melbourne Town Hall Melbourne Australia (map)

In 2019, we are very pleased to announce we will be working with Jessica Hitchcock and Deborah Cheetham AO from Short Black Opera.

In The Boite’s 40th year and the International year of Indigenous Languages, the Boite Schools Chorus will be exploring the Dhungala Choral Connection Song Book. 

This beautiful collection of songs features the experiences and languages of Aboriginal Children from around Australia. From Shepparton to Gunnedah, Grafton to Geelong from Portland to Broken Hill, Benalla to Bermagui and Dandenong, to Karijini National Park. Written and composed by Deborah Cheetham and Jessica Hitchcock through the Short Black Opera for Kids program, this valuable resource will reveal the beauty and complexity of Aboriginal languages through the powerful medium of song.

The Boite Schools Chorus in 2019 will begin with two concerts in Melbourne on Thursday 8th August  at Melbourne Town Hall, 1.00pm and 7.30pm.  Concerts in regional Victoria include Bendigo, Ballarat and Albury/Wodonga and will follow in late August and September.
