In small towns dotted across New South Wales, classical music doesn’t have much of a place. Michelle Leonard is determined to change that. Every year, she drives across the outback to audition singers for the Moorambilla Voices Choir. This deeply affectionate, and often funny, film follows a group of choir finalists including Aboriginal kids Taylah and Khynan. More than an ode to musical education, this film demonstrates music’s ability to foster empathy and break down cultural differences.
