Voices of Birralee

http://www.birralee.org

Voices of Birralee is a Brisbane based non-profit child and youth choral organisation founded in 1995 by Julie Christiansen OAM. What began as a children's choir now comprises six ensembles (and a seventh project choir, Birralee Recycled), which have attained a remarkable level of professionalism and are highly acclaimed by national and international audiences. The organisation caters for approximately 300 young people aged between five and 35 years and employs 20 casual staff and in excess of 25 volunteers.

Our organisation believes in providing children and young people with rewarding singing experiences both onstage and beyond the concert hall. Our activities focus on the provision of positive life experiences which allow them to move forward into adulthood as competent and confident human beings.

The name Birralee is derived from an indigenous word, Birralii, used in the language of the Yuwaalaraay and Gamilaraay people from North-West NSW and South-West QLD, meaning 'child/children.'
