The Australian Arab Choir sings its way to breaking communal stereotypes this Australia Day

The Australian Arab Choir will be performing a rendition of ‘I am Australian’ by the Seekers at an Australia Day event organised by the Iraqi Australian Christian Association and the Australian Arab Affairs, in an attempt to shatter negative stereotypes around the Arab and Middle Eastern communities in Australia. The event will be held on Sunday, January 20th at Elettra Hall, Bossley Park NSW.

The members of the Australian Arab Choir are from Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria and they come from a variety of religious backgrounds.
