Australian Boy's Choir

The Australian Boy's Choir Visits Wilpena Pound Resort.

The Australian Boy's Choir to Perform at Wilpena Pound Resort!

Wilpena Pound Resort will hold a Community Day on Saturday September the 30th 2017, to coincide with a visit from the world renowned Australian Boys Choir as they travel outback South Australia in preparation for their 2018 tour of Europe.

The choir, consisting of 28 young voices - will perform ‘Big Mountain Wilpena Pound’, a song written by Adnyamathanha Elder Buck (Barry) McKenzie, celebrating the iconic landscape of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges and Wilpena Pound. The performance will be at 1pm at the Wilpena Pound resort ampitheatre.

They will also perform a number of other songs from their repertoire for guests as part of the community day, where guests can also enjoy a full day of pop-up market stalls, boomerang making demonstrations and storytelling in the Yura Ngarwarla language to complement the Choir’s appearance.

Activities start at 10am, and culminate in a performance by the Australian Boy's Choir at 4pm, and a traditional kanagaroo cookout by the Adnyamathanha Traditional Owners.
