Singer/Songwriter, Choir Director and Great Southern A cappella founder Diana Clark first sang at the Boite’s Mark St venue with A cappella group Akasa; “I felt heard for the first time as a composer, this gave me confidence to pursue my creative voice.” Diana went on to direct the Millennium Chorus in concerts for Refugees, East Timor and Reconciliation.
All about the artist/s
“Over the past two decades I’ve enjoyed learning about countless composers and cultures through the music and stories programmed by this invaluable World Music hub in Melbourne. The Boite holds space in its concerts and festivals where opposing views can harmonise on one stage on one night and be heard and seen. This allows for truth telling, humility and learning, celebration of culture, diversity and unity, art and music as a format for divergent minds and lives to commune together. Miracles of beauty, pinnacles of performing and shared expression are witnessed in this space & mix. This is a time for us to remember to sing, give and take in music – no matter how distant we may be from one another.”
For Diana, "...during times of fear and doubt & being underemployed through 2020-21 I was grateful to make a deep and lasting connection with musicians on the other side of the southern hemisphere. Mila and Vico are now my partners in the Brazilian Virtual Choir Lab – it’s my happy place."
They are now calling for singers to join and share harmonies and Samba groove Tuesday nights via Rio de Janeiro online
