More about WOWS Choir
WOWS Choir is a unique choral group concept in WA. Members of WOWS Choir are from different backgrounds. WOWS Choir would like to take the audience to the parts of the world where songs and dances come from Middle East, Asia and Europe.
“This event is dedicated to hidden musicians and artists with great talent and passion to music and art, like my mother, whom did not have the opportunity to practise due to cultural and financial barriers.' - Filiz Shah
