Melbourne Millennium Chorus is a success story in itself. The Boite’s annually run a project called Melbourne Millennium Chorus. Each year a new theme is chosen. In 2013, Coco de Mer – Sounds of Seychelles came out triumphant. Promoting Creole songs among the group has been The Boite’s undisputed slogan. Under this project, The Boite hit the road in Melbourne with four huge concerts at Melbourne Town Hall. Guest artists included Jean-Marc Volcy, Grace Barbe and Gaetan Landry and they gained a standing ovation for their performance.

The Seychellois community in Melbourne Australia turned out in force to enjoy the biggest celebration of Seychellois culture ever showcased in Melbourne. Gaetan Landry performed a Tinge, which sparked much interest among the Australian audience and school children. The most popular song amongst the children was ‘La Buse’ written by Stella Savy.  The Melbourne based Seychellois musicians involved in the concerts include Darrel Belle, Sophie Morgan and Eddy Morel. For this cultural tour in Seychelles, The Boite’s small singing group includes Orietta Wheatley, member of the tour group born in Mauritius, and six singers from Melbourne and regional towns such as Bairnsdale, Ballarat, Mallacoota, Scarsdale, Clunes and Bunninyong. The Boite is planning a number of concerts in Seychelles. A concert on Praslin had also already been confirmed.
