Woodend Winter Arts Festival has teamed up with the Australian National Choral Association to present the inaugural WWAF Choral Marathon, as part of the Woodend High Street Festa on Saturday 10 June 2023.
WOODEND WINTER ARTS FESTIVAL (WWAF) HIGH STREET FESTA
For the first time, on Saturday 10 June, Woodend Winter Arts Festival brings colour, light and sound into High Street by night with a projected art exhibition on the heritage buildings of Woodend, extended trading hours and musicians and song warming the winter’s night. Artwork by local artist Mary Larnach-Jones will illuminate Woodend’s beloved facades and music will be heard from street organs and hundreds of voices together in song. Alongside the street festivities will be the Choral Marathon in the Community Centre Hall, showcasing choirs from across Victoria and a glorious range of choral talent.
WWAF CHORAL MARATHON
The Woodend Winter Arts Festival Choral Marathon is a five-hour long event that will showcase ten great Victorian choirs on the Kings Birthday long weekend amidst one of Victoria’s best food & wine regions. Ten choirs will each perform a 25-minute program of their own choral music to an audience of up to 100 people in the Woodend Community Centre Hall and also perform a 10-15 minute set to an outdoor audience on Woodend High Street. At the conclusion of all the choirs’ indoor performances, the singers from each of the choirs will come together in High Street for a mass choral experience, under the hands of Choral Director Jenny Mathers, to the backdrop of the illuminated outdoor art exhibition for the delight of festival audiences and local community members alike.
