About Voices of Birralee
Voices of Birralee is a Brisbane based non-profit child and youth choral organisation founded in 1995 by Artistic Director, Julie Christiansen OAM. What began as a children’s choir now comprises six ensembles (and a seventh project choir, Birralee Recycled), which have attained a remarkable level of professionalism and are highly acclaimed by national and international audiences. The organisation caters for approximately 400 young people aged between five and 35 years and employs 12 casual staff and in excess of 25 volunteers.
The organisation believes in providing children and young people with rewarding singing experiences, both onstage and beyond the concert hall. Their activities focus on the provision of positive life experiences which allow them to move forward into adulthood as competent and confident human beings.
The name Birralee is derived from an indigenous word, Birralii, used in the language of the Yuwaalaraay and Gamilaraay people from North-West NSW and South-West QLD, meaning child/children.
