Editorial – #ChooseToChallenge the patriarchy

It is easy to think we have almost achieved equality for men and women in a country like Australia – just as long as you don’t think too hard about it.

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.
