The Dream Voices Choir Workshops give festival goers a chance to get into the festival spirit and learn the festival theme song in preparation for Dream Voices Gala Event on 9 March, which includes a performance by renowned Aboriginal Australian soprano, actor, playwright and proud Yorta Yorta woman, Deborah Cheetham.
