On 24th March 2017 the Nillumbik Reconciliation Group and Boite combined to present a most enjoyable concert in St. Margaret’s Anglican Church Eltham, featuring the Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd.

The evening opened with an enthusiastic performance by the Mullum Mullum Choir.

Then Jessie followed with songs that reflected the musical style of the different locations where she had collected each one, and the words reflected the issues faced by Aboriginal people from that community. The songs were filled with hope, humour and sadness, but overall the resilience of Aboriginal people shone through.

The performance by her group received a standing ovation.
