It is time to sing and it doesn’t matter if you have never sung before. Voices of Birralee’s adult choir Birralee Recycled will be in Mullumbimby this Saturday hosting a workshop with the Northern Rivers Folk Choirs before performing a Sing in Spring concert in the evening. They are encouraging locals who love to sing to come and get involved in the workshop regardless of their background, age or experience.

The evening concert will involve a massed-choir performance including the participants from the day’s workshop.

Birralee Recycled started in 2016 and is an annual six week community choir project, with choristers drawn from the Voices of Birralee and greater community. Conducted by Peter Ingram, the choir is on its way to perform at the Tyalgum Music Festival this Sunday.

Both events will be held at the Mullumbimby Civic Centre, with the cost to attend the workshop just $30, with tickets to the concert $10 for adults and $5 for children. The workshop begins at 1.30pm, with the concert at 6.30pm. Sign-ups and ticket purchases can be made at the door.

More information is available on Voices of Birralee’s website.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
