More about the 2017 Festival

We are delighted to announce that the Pemulwuy! National Male Voice Festival in 2017 will be adopting the theme 'Voices from the Trenches' to commemorate the World War 1 Centenary period and the sacrifices made by the Anzacs in the Battles of The Somme.

Once again the event will provide an opportunity for individual boys, youth and adult males from every state to take part and will feature some of the finest male voice ensembles from Australia and abroad.

The event will also be enhanced by a unique collaboration with Australian National Choral Association's Choralfest

For this reason PNMVF will not be offering a PD strand, but encourages those interested in attending the weekend, to register as a delegate for Choralfest and get twice the benefit!
