Hot on the heels of our whirlwind tour of WA, Dare to Believe showcases the best of our current repertoire. We’re back at the Lithuanian Club in North Melbourne to show you just how great we sound after touring together! Enjoy old favourites alongside some show-stopping new tunes. There’s something for everyone!
We’re also thrilled to be joined by Tilley, a local singer, songwriter and vocal coach who sings of love, loathing, transformation and what it means to be human. A fabulous opener to what promises to be an amazing show.
On Friday, 31 May we will gather in Denmark, WA, spend three days at the Denmark Festival of Voice, then meander back towards Perth for a big closing gig on Saturday 8 June. Along the way we’ll meet choirs, swap songs, join with children’s choirs, enjoy the local delights (Margaret River wineries, anyone?) and have a rollicking good time!
We’re so excited to be part of the Festival of Voices! We’ll be popping up all over Hobart town from Wednesday 11 to Saturday 14 July. Rug up warm and come along!
