Moorambilla Voices Ltd has delivered life‐changing, creative experiences with the children and youth of north‐western NSW for over a decade.

Working in the most isolated and disadvantaged third of the state, Moorambilla is a rare opportunity for students in regional and remote communities to participate in, and connect with, high‐level music making. Since 2006, Moorambilla Voices has brought together more than 37,000 students from over 137 schools, aged between 8 and 18 from 20 local government areas across regional New South Wales, and increasingly in other parts of the country including Queensland and Western Australia, as part of an annual program unique to regional Australia. One third of our work is supported by government funding, the remainder – made up of grants and donations – is crucial in supporting our extensive annual program of development workshops in schools, residency camps, skills development tours and cultural immersions.

Each year over 3,400 children are involved in the program as part of the regional skills development workshops. From these workshops around 350 candidates are chosen each year and offered subsidised places. Parents are charged $660 pa in fees for a child to participate, but the actual cost is approx. $2,800. The 350 children selected for 2021, 2022 and 2023 will participate in the annual intensive choral residency camps in the country town of Baradine. All participants then perform in the annual gala performances at the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre. Candidates are chosen on merit for special projects including touring and recording.

Through our partnerships with leading arts organisations Moorambilla has become a rich artistic platform for emerging Australian artists and continues to develop and showcase the skills of regional visual artists and choreographers.
