Boite Millennium Chorus
The Millennium Chorus
Each year in August, The Boîte Millennium Chorus brings hundreds of singers from all over the state together for a grand concert in Hamer Hall. Chorus members from Richmond to Mallacoota rehearse for nine weeks for this spectacular event. Everyone is welcome to join!
A celebration of African music, from ancient songs to contemporary fusion at Hamer Hall.
One Africa is an adventurous vocal journey traversing the ancient African traditions of the Griots and the colourful fusion of the contemporary African diaspora. Bringing a message of unity and connectedness, One Africa is directed by Lamine Sonko.
Hear the power of the 300 voice Boîte Millennium Chorus led by Andrea Khoza, sharing traditional and contemporary African songs in one of the world’s finest concert halls.
Feel the rhythm of the Burundi Drummers welcoming you to Hamer Hall, leading you to your seats, then lining the stage for an awesome display.
See EMMY award winner Jimmy Mulovhedzi, Bouly Sonko (Senegal), Oumy Sene Sonko (Senegal) the Asanti Dance Theatre, Ajak Kwai from South Sudan, King Bell and much more.
The journey draws inspiration from African myths and traditions where every song has a story, sharing the vast diversity of Africa’s musical history through pulsing rhythms and the community of voices singing in harmony.
With an energetic line up of international African and local artists, the music presents the flavours of afro-classical roots, traditional percussion and afro-soul alongside a myriad of contemporary musical and vocal styles from across the continent.
