Members of Glennie’s Xpression and G Major choirs have been invited to participate in "Voices from the Trenches". This concert is a musical tribute to the First World War soldiers, not just those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in The Somme, France but also for the soldiers who returned home.
Presented by Brisbane’s Voices of Birralee, the festival will unite the community. School choirs will perform stunning music reflecting the WW1 era, with modern compositions. These will include a beautifully poignant and emotionally charged commissioned piece, ensuring the Anzac legacy is preserved.
This event will be run over the weekend of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May. Sunday will conclude with a concert uniting Voices of Birralee, Toowoomba school choirs, and community choirs to honour our Anzacs. Tickets for the concert can be purchased through the Empire Theatre.
