    › Choir Enrolments open for Freedom Road Bendigo

    Location: Ulumbarra Theatre, 10 Gaol Rd,  3550  , Bendigo VIC - Open in Google Maps -

    In 2021 The Boîte is bringing Stella Savy and Freedom Road to the beautiful Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo. Freedom Road originally staged in 2011 with the Boîte Millennium Chorus and explored the songs of slavery, music that has been the source of hope and inspiration for generations of people. 

    Be part of this un-auditioned choir of over 150 singers working with Stella Savy and a fabulous cohort of supporting artists towards staging a concert at The Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo on Sunday 31st October 2021. Supporting artists will include Carl Pannuzzo, Tim Neal, Geoffrey Williams, Barry Deenick, Barry Kay, Dany Fry, and the fabulous Kylie Auldist.

    Rehearsals are held in Bendigo, beginning with an intensive weekend then continuing on Sunday afternoons over 6 weeks (Sunday rehearsals will be available to live stream), culminating in our fabulous concert. Singers from across Victoria are welcome and all rehearsal resources will be available online.

    Join us to discover gospel music’s rich beginnings in Africa and its journey from plantation work songs, to church and onto the Civil Rights movement. Freedom Road will dive deep into this genre and celebrate its profound influence on modern day music, culture and politics. Secure your spot to be part of this very special event. If you have any questions please email Susan at
