Immerse yourself in the songs and experience the rich cultures of Zenadth Kes - the Torres Strait Islands as hundreds of students from schools across Victoria come together in a massed choir spectacular.
Artistic direction and special performances by proud Meriam educator and musician Deb Lowah Clark of the Torres Straits and Artistic Meriam cultural advisor, musician and thespian Luke Captain of the Torres Straits with choir direction by Stella Savy. This collaboration shares knowledge of the Torres Strait Islander peoples, whilst also incorporating traditional Arts of the Torres Straits. ‘At the Boite concert, singing was the obvious highlight. Every song had a great rhythm and beat, created by a small team of drummers and other percussionists playing on the stage with us. Even now,months later, I can remember all the words to the catchy songs.’- Annabelle, Student, Scots School Albury, Windrush .
