A Change is Gonna Come: Songs of protest, inspiration and triumph


A Change Is Gonne Come
24 June 2017
3pm and 7:30pm
Deakin Edge, Federation Square

Throughout history, music has always been powerful in galvanizing, motivating and strengthening communities of marginalized peoples.

Civil Rights, anti-war, Women’s Liberation and the LGBTIQ fight for equal rights are just a few social movements where music and song have played a crucial role.

Come join MGLC and the shOUT Youth Chorus as we take you on a journey showcasing iconic, stirring and beautiful songs from protest movements of the past and present; and songs of inspiration and triumph in the face of adversity. A Change Is Gonna Come promises to be a wonderfully poignant and uplifting musical experience for all.

New member intake Feb 1 2017

We are taking new members for 3 weeks from Wednesday February 1st to Wednesday February 15th inclusive! Meet the team, enjoy a cuppa and join us for some singing on all or any of the Wednesdays between February 1st and 15th. Unfortunately as we will be preparing for our next concert, we cannot take new members after February 15th.There is no cost and no commitment for these first 3 weeks, and if you decide that singing with us is your thing, we will ask you to attend a basic vocal assessment. It’s to make sure you can follow basic pitching and rhythm, and to place you in the right section.

To register your interest, please email and our friendly New Member co-ordinator will be in touch to answer all your questions.

Venue: Carlton (the address will be provided upon registration with our new member coordinator)
