Voices of Casey is part of the School of Hard Knocks 'Absolutely Everybody' choral program. The choir is conducted on Monday nights by the indefatigable Jonathon Welch. Its members range from 18 through to 82 years of age! Voices of Casey is an un-auditioned choir, brought together by a love of singing, fun, performing and sense of community.

STREET REQUIEM has now been performed extensively in Australia and also the US. Later this year a community of singers will travel to the USA, to perform STREET REQUIEM in Boston and at Carnegie Hall in New York. Each performance brings a new perspective, style and a special reality to this wonderful, inspiring and indeed iconic work.

The School's website at http://schoolofhardknocks.org.au/sohk/ also gives further information about the wonderful initiatives and programs run by the School.
