International Travel

Voice Weavers choir loves to travel. We travel domestically and internationally to represent Australia in a cappella performances, to learn from other high-standard international choirs, and to make a cultural exchange with singers from all around the world. We schedule a three-year travel cycle (pandemics allowing): after a year at home we aim to travel within Australia and then in the third year we plan to attend a choral festival or other event overseas. And so the cycle continues.

We encourage everyone to experience the thrill of joining Voice Weavers on one or more of our tours but we do require singers to meet a level of commitment in learning the music and attending the rehearsals. Voice Weavers sing at a high standard and we can have up to 30 songs in our repertoire for our tours. Most of the songs are our traditional pop choral arrangements but we also  learn songs native to the countries we visit and frequently sing with local choirs. The final decision on which songs you are able to perform with the choir rests with the Musical Director.

Singers can join us just for a tour, contact us for details.

In 2016 the choir travelled to Sochi Russia to compete at the
World Choir Games, the Olympics of the choral singing world. To break the journey we went via Beijing and Moscow. Our thanks to the Moscow Oratorio Choir who hosted our performance at the Hermitage Gardens and joined us on stage for a heart felt performance of Bogoroditse Devo and to Viki Smirnova who volunteered to give us a behind the scenes tour of Moscow. Hugs to Yulia  Akulova our choir wrangler in Sochi.
