About the Latin Choir Brisbane
The Latin Choir Brisbane is a community choir that sprouted in 2020 from the need in the community of people from Latin America to stay connected to aspects of their culture such as music, dance, food, modes of socialising, and celebration of iconic calendar festivities. We deeply value the diversity and intercultural exchange that this choir provides, not only for the Latin American community but also for the Australian people from different backgrounds who are joining and enjoying singing in Portuguese, Spanish, and English.
We value our community, our connection to our origins and ancestors, as much as the land and people that have received us in Australia. Our mission is to bring and share the elements that make us feel connected to our essence, with music being at the forefront!
Acknowledgement of Country
The Latin Choir Brisbane acknowledges the Turrbal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather and create music. We pay our respects to the Elders, those who have passed into the dreaming; those here today; those of tomorrow.
As we sing and share our love for Latin American culture, we extend our gratitude to the First Nations people for their wisdom, their stewardship of the land, and their resilience in the face of adversity. We commit to listening, learning, and working together to build a future that respects and values the diverse cultures that make up this beautiful land.
