Brisbane (QLD)


Since our launch in April 2014, With One Voice Brisbane has been welcoming people from every walk of life and all levels of singing experience. Under the expert guidance of conductor Cath Mundy, members of With One Voice Brisbane have experienced amazing opportunities performing with talented artists such as John Farnham, Glenn Shorrock, The Voice’s Lara Nakhle and recently at QPAC’s Concert Hall with Dan Sultan and The Voice’s Ellen Reed.

We meet every Wednesday evening to sing an eclectic repertoire from folk, gospel and world to pop-rock with an emphasis on fun.  Sometimes we sing original songs written and arranged by our accompanist/conductor team Jay Turner and Cath Mundy. After a final song, our evening closes with Wish List and supper supplied by choristers on a voluntary basis. We have an awesome team of volunteers who help keep our choir running smoothly.

On the first Wednesday of every month, after rehearsal, members of our choir head out for a meal and a drink. This is a great opportunity to connect, share and build a stronger choir community.

WOVBrisbane presents two free concerts a year in local venues showcasing our choir; in April to celebrate our anniversary and in mid-December to celebrate the Festive Season before our summer break.

 

Testimonials:

What a beautiful performance by an evocative choir! Thank you all! You took a great event to the next level of positive feeling and inclusion. Every single person in the room singing and dancing! The way you started your performance by meeting all of our guests was stunning. Thank you‘. – Peak Care Queensland

“Cath and choir, thank you so much for lifting our spirits at the Forum. Hearing some of the choir participants’ stories were very powerful and heart-warming.” Carer’s Forum 2017

We left our WOV Brisbane Performance last night, for the National Women in the Construction Industry Gala Dinner in Brisbane, feeling good and that we had contributed to something very special for Lara Nahkle (our soloist), that 500-person audience and ourselves. The audience standing ovation told us very clearly that they were thrilled by this significant performance from Lara and our WOV Brisbane Choir under Cath’s excellently-skilled musical leadership. We are sincerely grateful to Cath and Jay for their patience, professionalism and expertise that they contribute to us so freely and warmly – so that we not just sing (or warble) as we did alone before joining the choir, but we now sing with some confidence and sense of value under the wonderful guidance of Cath in particular and Jay. – WOV Brisbane Chorister

Creativity Australia believes it offers an arts-health social inclusion program unique from any other.

Through the With One Voice program, barriers of age, race, language, religion, disability and disadvantage are removed to make everyone welcome.

Why singing? Because neuroscience proves singing connects neural pathways in the brain differently, releasing endorphins, making people healthier, happier, smarter and more creative.

Using singing as the vehicle for community inclusion is the centerpiece of why our program works. Music is a powerful social magnet and acts as a super “social glue” that binds people together. The more we use music to bring us together—literally and figuratively—the more potential for increased empathy, social connection, and cooperation.

Creativity Australia’s first Queensland choir, With One Voice Brisbane, is an absolute hit! You’re invited to share the joy at City Hall.
