One of the greatest Central Australian stories is about to make its debut in Melbourne in August. The Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir will be coming to Melbourne. From 4 to 9 August there will be a series of performances, concerts and media appearances to mark the world premiere season of their feature-length documentary – The Song Keepers- telling the story of the choir and its inspirational people.
It is going to be a simply amazing weekend! Tickets for their concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre are now on sale. Tickets are selling fast. You can get all the information and book tickets by clicking on this link (or copying it into your browser), or just Google The Song Keepers in Concert Melbourne Recital Centre. One way or another you should be able to get there.
Once you have secured your ticket, come early to the Recital Centre and witness a ‘welcome to country’ in honour of the choir at 6.00pm. Also, a collection of portraits of some of the women by Barb Stuart will be on display in the foyer of the Recital Centre.
To date I have no information about the dates, times and tickets for the documentary screening. But it will be while the choir is in Melbourne for what promises to be the biggest weekend of their lives….ever! Tickets and information about the screening will be available from 12 July at miff.com.au You must book these separately, so I would advise you to book the concert tickets now so as to be assured of a seat at the Recital Centre concert, and then book for the documentary screening when their tickets come on sale on 12 July.
