    Description: Boite 40th Anniversary Final Fling

    We are joining our good friends at the Boite for a fabulous final 40th fling in the Boite’s 40th birthday year celebrations, Enjoy an evening of music, dance and fun in the newly restored Laundry at Abbotsford Convent with a marvellous selection of musicians from 2019’s programs.

    Throughout 2019, The Boite in Melbourne celebrated 40 years of multicultural music programs. For any community-based, slimly resourced arts organization, such longevity is a significant achievement. 

    To ensure this ongoing long life, The Boite has set up an end of year fundraiser on November 30th. With the 2020 programs only months away, supporters and workers aim to inject additional funds. In 2020 the annual season of small concerts across Melbourne, specific projects with particular communities, special events in response to requests from artists, and co-presenters, will offer listeners another year filled with the music of Melbourne’s diverse cultural patchwork. The Boite Schools Chorus, involving 40 schools and 1000 young singers across the state, will take the music and stories to the next generation.

    The Fundraiser will be a concert in the newly refurbished Laundry at Abbotsford Convent. Ten performing groups from this year’s program have volunteered to play, donors are providing items for a silent auction, it’s an opportunity to enjoy gorgeous music in a venue that has just come on line this year, and feel really good about having a good time.
