Moorambilla Voices is more than a program about country kids learning about artistic expression, it’s a program that helps them find their voice, their passion and even their path for the future. Established in 2006 it has brought together more than 20,000 students from 133 schools, aged between 8-18, as part of a unique cultural experience. This season the skills development workshops had 3608 Students attend from 133 Schools invited in 75 workshops.
Each year over 300 students attend a camp where they dance, sing, compose, paint, weave, play taiko and learn about the cultural traditions and stories of their landscape. This is done in partnership with the highest quality professional musicians, performers, composers, dancers and visual artists.
We have been celebrated nationally to critical acclaim in documentary and feature film format –”Outback Choir” & “Wide Open Sky”.

Under Michelle’s direction, the choirs and annual program has flourished, receiving numerous national and state awards.
