Pride Choir Workshop
Fri 30 June - Sat 1 July | 2-day workshop | $235 / $205 concession*
Discover the power of music in this inclusive workshop experience with Sarah Penicka-Smith
Looking to find your voice? (aren’t we all!) Then this workshop is for you. In fact, this workshop is for everyone! We encourage folks of all genders and sexuality, experienced singers and absolute beginners to join us. If you or someone you know understands the power of singing for social justice and community – you are welcome!
Come along to this two-day singing experience and share your journey through song in a joyful, inclusive community. No experience necessary! We’ll help you find your voice with songs that will demonstrate the power of music to break down walls and build community.
Raise your voice alongside socially-engaged conductor Sarah Penicka-Smith. During the workshop, the Pride Choir will rehearse for their inclusion in the Big Sing Bonfire event.
Who knows where your voice may take you…
