Dhungala Childrens Choir

Dhungala Children's Choir (DCC) was formed in 2009 by Deborah Cheetham AO and has become the peak choral performance group for Indigenous children in Victoria and Northern NSW.

Members of DCC have performed around Australia with Short Black Opera Company in performances of Deborah Cheetham's Pecan Summer and come together annually in Melbourne for Dhungala Choral Connection—a three day choral camp designed to reform traditional song lines between the many language groups represented within the choir.

Children enter DCC via Short Black Opera's regional engagement program Short Black Opera for Kids. This program provides training in musicianship, stagecraft, song writing and performance skills to children aged 8 to 12 inspiring excellence, leadership and confidence.
