The Dhungala Children’s Choir—led by Deborah Cheetham AO in conductor’s role—will show why they are the peak choral performance group for Indigenous children in Victoria. They’ll be performing songs from the Choral Connection Song Book, written by Deborah to enable the children to reconnect with and celebrate their Indigenous language.

The collection of songs features the experiences and languages of Aboriginal Children from around Australia—brought to the heart of Melbourne for this incredible occasion.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
