Hey everyone check out the Sydney Sing for Good entry.
Singing weekly is our chance to have fun, meet new people and forget about the challenges and dramas of life. Gathered around the piano we love being part of our community and sharing the joy of song!
Kicking off 2016 With One Voice
February 1, 2016
The With One Voice choir season has officially begun!
Was your New Year’s resolution to get involved in your local community? Was it to express yourself more or to give yourself a chance to sing again? Perhaps it was to make new friends, or reach out to those in need?
Our doors are open and we welcome you to join us at your local With One Voice choir!
We started the year off on a great note, with members from around Victoria singing together in the Melbourne CBD for Australia Day. Click below to watch With One Voice participating in the 2016 Australia Day Parade.

SING FOR SPRING: Votes & Donations Update Just one month to go in Sing for Spring and there’s a Brisbane/Melbourne ‘people’s choice’ TIE for top spot!
Donations and votes both count towards the winners, so please enjoy the amazing video gallery and act now to support your favourites!
Thank you to everyone who has entered, voted, donated and spread the word so far. We are so grateful for your support.. but we have a way to go.
This uplifting project is for a great cause. It’s more fun (and less chilly) than the Ice Bucket Challenge and a great way to help diverse communities work together in harmony towards brighter futures!
This song was written specially for Sing for Spring by Scott Johnson (singer/songwriter, actor, star of the Jersey Boys) and features his partner Verity Hunt-Ballard (Sing for Spring Ambassador and Helpmann Award winning star of Mary Poppins) and With One Voice choir participants. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this wonderful recording project.
What would the world be like if we sung more? To find out, be part of Sing for Spring, our national community singing project.

We would love YOU to enter… with your choir, your family, your colleagues, your sports team, your school – let’s get Australia singing! www.singforspring.com
We don’t care if entrants have never sung before! We want to have a bit of fun and get families, schools, workplaces and community groups together to sing a song, video it and enter it online. A nursery rhyme, office karaoke, campfire hip-hop, yodelling… the sky’s the limit! The first videos have already started trickling in, including Melbourne Mum Yvette and 5-year-old Levi singing and beatboxing!
Everyone is invited to register now at www.singforspring.com, challenge friends, vote, share and donate! Entry is by donation of about $10 per participant. The best videos will be shown on the big screen at Federation Square and the With One BIG Voice concert (Melbourne Town Hall) in October. So let’s get together and Sing for Spring!
