Participant Survey & Festive Wishes
December 19, 2013
Dear With One Voice choirs
Thank you for your heartfelt participation in the With One Voice program during 2013!
We’ve had a wonderful year and we look forward to a joyous 2014 – when we’ll launch new programs in Altona Meadows, Redfern (NSW) and Brisbane.
To continue and improve our programs, and ensure they are open to all people, we appreciate your continued support. If you can donate to sponsor someone in need (we subsidise 73% of participants), bring a friend or simply spread the word… you are playing an essential role in the development of one of Australia’s top social innovations.
Let’s work together to empower individuals and build supportive communities nationwide in 2014 and beyond!
This year, we invited you to take part in a comprehensive Participant Survey. The results have been carefully collated and your valuable feedback will continue to inform improvements to our program, repertoire, resources, performances and more.
Here’s a quick snapshot of key findings:
- 99% love their conductors (we do too!)
- 97% say choir is a great way to de-stress
- 94% of participants are proud to be a member of the program
- 91% say they always feel better about their day after choir
- 86% Say the program is a great way to bond with colleagues, friends or family
Around half of you are also keen to take part in more performances, especially joint choir performances – so we’ll be directing more energy into this next year.
If you know of a great local event we could take part in, please let us know!
Wishing you and yours a magical festive season, filled with the joy of song.
