As part of a nationwide application process Voices of Birralee was selected by the Department of Veterans' Affairs to provide choral services for the World War One Centenary Commemorative events from 2015 - 2019. During the five years, Voices of Birralee's choirs will perform at Anzac Day services and significant centennial events across the Western Front, in France and Belgium.
To create these opportunities for our young choristers we hope to raise $20,000 annually for the next three years.
