This year, the festival will also launch Voices Unbound a  multi-ethnic choir, geared at young singers. The project will bring together like-minded young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds in a safe and nurturing space to develop connections across cultural and language boundaries. It harnesses the power of song to explore identity and individuality, build confidence and stimulate collaboration.

A number of scholarships are available for singers between the ages of 16 and 25 to attend the festival for free. These have been provided by community choirs including Box Hill Community Arts Centre Choir, Breathing Space, Brunswick Women’s Choir, Cadence, Gorani, Living Out Loud, Phoenix, Phoenix Park Singers, South of The River Choir, The Chocolate Lilies, Thursday’s Children and the Victorian Trade Union Choir.
