For the Singer in your life:

In 2022 The Boite is bringing Stella Savy and Freedom Road to the beautiful Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo.

 

Freedom Road, originally staged in 2011 with the Boite Millennium Chorus, celebrates the songs of slavery, music that has been the source of hope and inspiration for generations of people. Join us to discover gospel music’s rich beginnings in Africa and its journey from plantation work songs, to church and onto the Civil Rights movement. Freedom Road will dive deep into this genre and celebrate its profound influence on modern day music, culture and politics.

 

Be part of this un-auditioned choir of over 150 singers working with Stella Savy and a fabulous cohort of supporting artists towards staging a concert at The Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo on Sunday May 8th 2022.

 

Supporting artists will include Carl Pannuzzo, Tim Neal, Geoffrey Williams, Barry Deenick, Barry Kay, Dany Fry and the fabulous Kylie Auldist.


Rehearsals will be held in Bendigo, beginning with an intensive weekend in September and then continuing on Sunday afternoons over 6 weeks culminating in our fabulous concert. Singers from across all Victoria are welcome.
