Help young Australians find their voice - and share it with the world!
Under the direction of Lyn Williams OAM, Gondwana Choirs is Australia's most dynamic choral organization for young people. Internationally renowned for our artistic excellence and innovation, we are the Sydney Children's Choir, Gondwana National Choirs and the Gondwana National Indigenous Children's Choir.
We are developing a unique Australian choral voice by providing high-quality music education to talented young musicians from across urban, rural, regional and remote Australia through our internationally-renowned choral training programs. As well as training, we provide opportunities for our choristers to perform with innovation and excellence alongside artists of the highest calibre in Australia and throughout the world.
As a small arts company with a wide reach and a big vision, we receive just 15% government funding, and so we need your support to help us continue to nurture and inspire young people.
I am never happier with music than when I am at a Sydney or Gondwana Children's Choir concert. The sound is superb, the precision and discipline is astonishing, and the concentration and animation of the kids is a joy. And what a wonderful experience for them! Such a beginning to their lives must give them an advantage so great that it is almost unfair. Richard Letts, Executive Director, Music Council of Australia
Help us to give amazing musical and educational opportunities to talented young Australian singers, composers and conductors from across the country, regardless of their circumstances. We look forward to sharing our voice with you…
How will the funds be used?
Your donation will help Gondwana Choirs continue to provide life-changing opportunities to young Australians, through:
Bursaries which give socially, physically or economically disadvantaged young Australians amazing musical, social and educational opportunities through our Sydney Children's Choir and Gondwana National Choirs. Accessibility is one of our core values - we want to ensure that no suitably talented and enthusiastic child is excluded from our programs due to financial or geographical barriers. Bursary recipients include Gondwana choristers from rural and regional Australia, whose families have been adversely affected by drought, floods, and increased food and fuel prices. Others are single income families, reliant on government income support or families touched by tragedy.
Gondwana is like a patchwork quilt: every person ever involved with the choir contributes a patch. Every patch is unique but when joined together they create the greatest warmth and satisfaction. This quilt that we have created together has helped me to grow to my greatest potential musically and emotionally. Gondwana Voices bursary recipient.
Are donations tax deductible?
Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
Yes, it will be issued by Gondwana Choirs a little while after your donation.
