COVID-19 update - 2020 Festival Cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Voices of Birralee has made the difficult decision to postpone the Pemulwuy! National Male Voice Festival 2020 for the foreseeable future.  Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, we are unsure of when it will be possible to make another Festival viable.   Ideally, we would have preferred to delay the Festival until next year but as it is not known when travel and gathering restrictions will be lifted, we believe it is socially & fiscally responsible to cancel now.


All registered ensembles and individuals would have received an email today regarding the cancellation.  Please refer to this for further information.


A positive is that we will have new male voice music commissions ready for when we present our next Festival – these have been completed by our Pemulwuy composers - Paul Jarman, Sally Whitwell, Luke Byrne and Will Brown.  We are honouring these commissions as these wonderful Australian artists have had their income opportunities reduced by COVID-19.  


At Voices of Birralee, we strongly believe in the mental health and wellbeing of all our community and the comradery that being part of the Pemulwuy Festival brings.  We will be looking at ways to continue to keep our wonderful Pemulwuy community engaged so remember to follow us on FaceBook and know that you can always reach out to our leadership team here at Voices of Birralee - we too will be miss seeing you at Pemulwuy 2020! 


So, until we meet again, remember to take care and stay safe!


Yours in music
