Closure of With One Voice Frankston
July 17, 2014
It is with great regret that Creativity Australia announces the closure of its With One Voice Frankston program.
The success and sustainability of the With One Voice program is contingent upon its community engagement model. This model has been the cornerstone of the growth of Creativity Australia’s programs. Unfortunately, whilst the With One Voice Frankston has received great support from the individual members of the Frankston community, Creativity Australia has been unable to attract the financial support from the local businesses and government to ensure the continued operation of this program.
Creativity Australia would like to take this opportunity to thank supporters and partners of the Frankston program, in particular, The Brotherhood of St Laurence and Max Employment. Moreover, Creativity would like to also thank the wonderfully talented conductors, Sue Kirkpatrick and Jenny Taylor, who have worked tirelessly to grow the choir.
Creativity Australia would also like to thank the Frankston City Council for taking the time to review our submissions, during our last ditch efforts to save the choir.
The last rehearsal of With One Voice Frankston will be on 28 July.
We hope that this is not the last that will be heard of With One Voice Frankston and the wonderful voices that attended choir each week.
