In 2015, the Boite Millennium Chorus will present a concert titled One Africa. To be held at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Sunday, 30 August, the performance will cover the history of African music, from ancient songs to contemporary fusion.
The Chorus is comprised of vocalists of all levels and experiences, from all over Victoria. Its size varies from year to year, but is usually between 250 and 400 people. Rehearsals, which begin in June, will take place in both Melbourne and regional centres over ten weeks. In Melbourne, they’ll be held at Melbourne Girls College, Richmond, each Sunday between 2 and 4pm, starting on 21 June.
Boite is in the process of recruiting regional choir leaders. However, the final concert will be directed by Lamine Sonko and Andrea Khoza. Mr Sonko is a Senegalese singer and dancer and leader of ten-piece ensemble African Intelligence. Ms Khoza is a singer, songwriter, teacher and co-director of Khoza Entertainment.
