The theme of this spring concert, “Songs of Hope; Songs of Home”, features an upbeat repertoire, from African folksongs to Leonard Cohen; from contemporary folk to an opera chorus by Verdi and a number from the musical "Rent".Our guest artist this season is Samara Jade, who is known for weaving a unique tapestry of folk, jazz, blues, and world-fusion.

The Gettin’ Higher Choir is proud to support for the 21st year The Caia Connection, a grassroots charity based in Victoria, that raises funds and supports education, food, and health programs in Mozambique. This concert is especially important since Cyclone Idai devastated communities supported for years by Victorians through The Caia Connection. All proceeds from the concert and donations will help our friends rebuild their lives.
