St Kilda Sing for Good Entry

Hey everyone check out the St Kilda Sing for Good entry.

With One Voice St Kilda is one of Creativity Australia’s social wellbeing and inclusion choirs. We may all come from different walks of life, but singing and a love of music brings us together every Monday evening. We enjoy singing a range of songs, and the welcoming community of our special choir. This particular song was a crowd favourite in our recent Acland Street performances!

Geelong Sing for Good Entry

Hey everyone check out the Geelong Sing for Good entry.

With Once Voice Geelong is about so much more than singing. While singing is what brought us all together, the friendships and sense of belonging it generates is what matters most. Joining a community choir is a great way to break down barriers and connect with the community. We welcome everyone, regardless of singing ability. You just have to look at our Sing For Good entry to see how much fun we have.

Ashburton Sing for Good Entry

Hey everyone check out the Ashburton Sing for Good entry!

Creativity Australia Choir Ashburton Sings meet every Wednesday night at 6.15pm-7.30pm at Ashburton Baptist Church, Marquis Street, ASHBURTON.

We are a relaxed, happy and supportive group. There is a vibrancy about Creativity Australia choirs that’s hard to explain – you just feel it. We have a spirit that is contagious and fills us with joy that lasts till the next time we meet.

Our conductor, Kym Dillon nurtures us to sing with confidence and a joy to uplift us from mere mortals to ‘singers’. Real singers!
Our video was filmed over two weeks at Wednesday night choir and we hope you can feel our spirit.

Not only are we talented choristers, we are also video stars thanks to Kym and his talent in putting together our video.
Please show us you like our efforts with lots of ‘heart likes’ and shares. Oh and please donate to our Ashburton choir with your hard earned money, it is used to keep us singing!!!

Conducted by With One Voice lead conductor Kym Dillon, the With One Voice Altona Meadows group includes residents of Benetas St George’s Aged Care Facility as well as friends, family and community members. Over several weeks the students of Altona Meadows Primary, lead by Gregory Hall, visited the facility to rehearse with the choir. The students incorporated their musical instrument skills into the songs, and the two groups learned to sing in harmony.

Lead by Conductor Jolene Moran, With One Voice St Kilda
 

Art for the Heart is an art exhibition held by Tobin Brothers Funerals that honours the use of creativity as a powerful source of healing and expression during the process of grief. It offers a space for people to tell their stories of loss, love & hope in new ways and to bring the community together to share the often hidden experiences of grief and depression. Many of the artworks were donated for auction to raise money for The Compassionate Friends Victoria.

Head to Youtube for videos.
