Creativity Australia believes it 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 neuroscience proves 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 centre piece 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 Melbourne was the first With One Voice choir, having started in 2009.
- We have a diverse range of members who love to come together and sing their hearts out each week.

WOV Melbourne 2020/21
With the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020, WOV Melbourne could not meet in person for
rehearsals. Instead, we started having weekly Zoom meetings and singing on Facebook
Live. It was fun being able to sing to your heart’s content in the comfort of your own home.
One of the highlights was seeing Zerafina Zara’s costumes each week, which she matched
to the theme of the week. Another highlight was being able to tune in to the other
conductors too, because each conductor has their own style. A final highlight was meeting
on Zoom and having a chat and choosing the songs that Zerafina would play. A general
theme that ran through all the songs was comfort and hope, which I think was important to
everyone in the group.
Huge heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Zerafina Zara, Nathan Lange and all the team at
Creativity Australia for ensuring we were able to keep singing through this challenging
time. – By member Annabel Carr
