The Moorambilla Voices Regional Boys and Girls Choirs are for primary students in Years 3-6. Following the Skills Development Workshop Tour, talented boys are offered a place in the choir and the chance to participate in the Baradine Residency Camps, Gala Performances, Tours or Concerts and recordings throughout the year. Moorambilla Voices works hard to ensure that any child who is offered a place is supported financially to do so through our policies of inclusion and equity.

The choirs meet for two residency camps in Baradine, in August and September for the Gala Concert. At these camps, they work alongside leading composers, musicians, artists and choreographers to engage in challenging new learning experiences and collaboratively create repertoire for performances. They develop skills in:
- choral singing and repertoire
- music theory and sight-singing
- movement and dance
- drumming and percussion
- creativity in other artistic mediums, such as visual arts
- performance experience
- self-discipline and concentration
- performing as part of an ensemble
As well as rehearsing as a choir there will be many opportunities for other activities on camp such as making and playing percussion instruments, bushwalks at Baradine, sport, bonfires and skit nights. There may also be opportunities to work with other artists in residence, as in past years, where the students were involved in painting and weaving the Gala concert backdrop and artworks used to decorate the performance spaces. In short, lots of intensely creative and fun times for all.
The repertoire and skills learnt during the residency camps are put into practice at the annual Moorambilla Gala Concert in September. In 2017 this will take place in Dubbo at the Dubbo Regional Theatre. The girls travel from Baradine to Dubbo, and then perform in three concerts alongside some of Australia’s leading musicians and associate ensembles, including artists from Queensland Ballet, The Song Company and percussionists from Taikoz.
