The Australian Union and Solidarity Choir is a collaboration by trade union choir members from around Australia and the Solidarity Choir from Sydney.
Brisbane started it all by organising a trip to Cuba in 2009 to take part in an international festival of choirs in Santiago de Cuba. The Sydney Trade Union Choir organised another such trip in 2013. There is another trip being organised in 2018, this time to Timor Leste, between Monday the 27th of August and Wednesday the 5th of September. See 2018 Schedule in Timor for the evolving schedule details.
A publicity description of the 2018 Timor trip is at Description of Tour to Timor 2018

We raised $4800 from a crowd funding site at https://chuffed.org/project/australian-union-and-solidarity-choir-2018-tour-to-timor-leste for our Timor trip to reimburse some expenses and to pay for translations and a booklet of song notes in Tetum.
