Created in 2008 by Lyn Williams, the Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir (GICC) is provided at no cost to participants, and its members strive for the pursuit of excellence and embrace life-changing opportunities.
The CGICC choir is becoming a strong and reputable choir, both within the Cairns region and throughout Australia. They are a choir of exceptional standards which performs interesting and demanding repertoire. This reputation has been gained through the hard work and complete dedication of choristers.
The CGICC is the ensemble that is recognised in the professional musical community as the National Indigenous Choir within Gondwana Choirs. It is a treble choir of girls and unchanged boys voices. Its repertoire is both demanding and extensive. Therefore, choristers are expected to work on music at home and make a real commitment to attend every rehearsal.
CGICC is conducted by Lyn Williams and Chris Burcin, supported by pianist Lauren Hannay.
CGICC Singers is a training choir for younger choristers, which focuses on building the musical skills and confidence required for the main choir. Singers is conducted by Violet Hari.
