Our Indigenous Songbirds Go Far, A Long, Long Way To Run

The Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir take on the trip of a lifetime.


via GICC

This group of spritely, young choristers from Far North Queensland have taken, what is for many their first time overseas, a trip across the globe to join one of the worlds most famous boys’ choirs on stage.


The 22 members of the GICC flew to Vienna to perform alongside the Vienna Boys Choir at the prestigious MuTh.


“Visiting and performing in Vienna, the world capital of classical music, was a life-changing experience for the young singers – many who had never before travelled overseas, let alone performed in such revered venues,” said Lyn Williams OAM, Gondwana Choirs Founder and Artistic Director.  


“Welcoming GICC to Vienna gave us the opportunity to introduce them to Schönbrunn Palace to learn about our history, discover Vienna’s fun side at the Prater where they rode the famous Ferris Wheel, and taste culinary classics such as Schnitzel and Strudel,” said Astrid Mulholland-Licht, Director of the Austrian National Tourist Office in Sydney. “I was personally impressed and delighted by the interest and curiosity displayed by our young guests who immersed themselves in the Austrian culture.”


Now, the Vienna Boys Choir is making the return trip to perform again with the GICC at the Sydney Opera House, and on home ground in Queensland.
