Voices Unbound is The Boite's young singers' choir. Led by the sensational Australian-Chilean singer Ximena Abarca, Voices Unbound meet every week and build a repertoire based on both the traditional and contemporary music of its members’ diverse cultural backgrounds. It harnesses the power of song to explore identity and individuality, build confidence and stimulate collaboration.
Voices Unbound meets weekly online, Mondays at 7:00pm, and has pioneered the use of cloud technology to support the sessions with interactive activities, choir recordings and more.
"The entire choir has been super welcoming and energetic in creating a special space. I have learnt so much already about harmonies and singing with others." - Rachael, Mezzo-Soprano
