The organization caters for approximately 400 young people aged between 5 and 30 years. They sing a variety of music styles and particularly enjoy promoting Australian music. They have participated in festivals in Australia, Canada, USA, New Zealand, Korea, Austria, Germany and Czech Republic and our signature children’s choir, Brisbane Birralee Voices received two gold medals at Concorsa Corale Internazionale in April 2014. For this concert the choir is drawn from two of our signature ensembles – Resonance of Birralee and Brisbane Birralee Voices and is under the direction of Julie Christiansen.
