Valla Voices began as a small group of friends singing for their local Christmas Carols event in 2015 in the beautiful Mid North Coast south of Coffs Harbour. It was such a success that they began to rehearse weekly in our lounge room amongst the rainforest and macadamias in Valla Rural, sharing food and weekly happenings with a focus on singing fine choral repertoire from around the world.  They’ve grown to 30 members and have performed locally alongside Birralee Voices at the Bellingen Fine Music festival, the Coffs Harbour Eisteddfod, annually at Valla Carols and local hospitals, festivals and markets.

In 2017 Valla Voices travelled to Brisbane to take part in the Australian National Choral Association festival and this year they’re delighted to tour for the second time as part of the Gondwana World Choral Festival. Taking these wonderfully talented local children from a rural area to broader horizons is their passion, and we are currently planning a tour of Europe in 2021, performing in Germany, Luxembourg, France, Italy and Austria. Valla Voices is co-directed and conducted by composers Paul Jarman and Bonnie Nilsson and in 2018 they were delighted to welcome music specialist Pru Borgert to the team.
