The Birralee Blokes have done for male singing what ‘Billy Elliot’ did for male dancing.

The Birralee Blokes came along, and singing for young men and boys in this country 
has never been the same since.

A performance by the Birralee Blokes is both an aural and visual treat providing a perfect blend of 
fine music making firmly rooted in all that is good about Australian culture.

The Birralee Boys are formed as a project choir especially for the Pemulwuy National Male Voice Festival.
They are drawn from the children's ensembles in the existing Voices of Birralee training choir program.

For one term, they rehearse together for their participation in the PNMVF.
This gives them a unique opportunity to share a love of singing in a completely MALE context!
