Talented young tenor Nathan Bryon was recently the guest speaker at SMSA’s Annual General Meeting on behalf of Moorambilla Voices, telling us about the program and treating us to some impromptu singing.
Moorambilla Voices is a multi-arts development program that connects talented young people from rural and remote areas with some of Australia’s finest composers, musicians, choreographers and regional artists. The program draws young people from around 70 schools across a region which represents the most isolated and disadvantaged area of NSW.
One of Moorambilla Voices’ success stories, Nathan, who was brought up in Dubbo, is currently studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, is a Choral Scholar of St Stephens Uniting Church, and performs regularly with the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus and as well as various other Sydney based ensembles. His bright future is apparent from his full biography and his performance (both available at left)..
In 2016, the board was pleased to support the Moorambilla Arts Pathways (MAP) initiative with a grant of $10,000. The MAP program provides senior Moorambilla Voices participants with one-on-one mentoring relationships.
