Local community choirs wander up and down Gertrude Street during the Festival, choosing nooks where they can stop and sing short sets from their repertoires. They provide a compelling aural backdrop for the amazing visual array the GSPF offers. They are another antidote to Winter.
Melbourne’s premier multicultural music presenter, The Boite Vic Inc. has operated out of the City of Yarra for the past 37 years. The Boite proudly presents the music of Melbourne’s diverse cultural communities and engage in quirky, fun projects like roaming choirs in the wonderful Gertrude Street Projection Festival.
This year local singers are joined by The Zamponistas, Melbourne’s only Latin American Panpipe choir. Outdoor, roaming performances are part of the tradition they come from and Gertrude Street is a perfect performance space for them.
