Last week Benetas St George’s hosted An Afternoon of Dean Martin, a collaboration of students from Altona Meadows Primary School and the members of With One Voice Altona Meadows.

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.

Age proved no boundary, as the two groups delivered a stellar performance to a jubilant crowd at Benetas St George’s on Wednesday.

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.

Yet creativity is probably just what business needs – a chance for that unique, creative voice to shine, to re-energise, re-invent and re-imagine or create the future.
