Ashburton (VIC)

Did you know that singing changes your brain?

You’re invited to experience the joy, freedom and inspiration of song at your local With One Voice choir!

  • no auditions and no singing experience needed
  • all ages, faiths, cultures and backgrounds welcome
  • participation by tax-deductible donation
  • weekly rehearsals + supper
  • professional conductors
  • amazing performances

Creativity Australia 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 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 centrepiece 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.

  • With One Voice Ashburton is a choir growing in popularity and membership.
  • We have a diverse range of members from every corner of the globe who love to come together and sing their hearts out each week.

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!!!

 

Kicking off 2016 With One Voice
