Our Aims, in conjunction with Aboriginal musical directors:

  • To sing in and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait language songs and compositions by indigenous artists from around Australia.
  • To acknowledge and embrace the stolen generations and their journey of healing.
  • To generate healing within the community through the vibrations of our harmonious songs.
  • To increase our Aboriginal and Torres Strait membership at every opportunity.
  • To create a warm, sensitive, safe environment to encourage members to express the joy and beauty of music.
  • To promote and embrace reconciliation through the multicultural blend of our members.
  • To share the joy of singing to and with Aboriginal communities and country towns.
  • To encourage Aboriginal communities and people from remote regions to form similar singing groups to enhance the healing process.
  • To have no singing pre requisites for membership, apart from the will to receive and spread the joy in songs and camaraderie.
  • To use practise methods and materials that allow for members to learn to sing or develop their confidence to sing in a nurturing and supportive way.
