“To see my Mom’s enjoyment of belonging to a local choir made me interested to come along and see it for myself. After six months of attending, meeting new people, listening to Kym, our choirmaster, and learning from him, being involved in the big concert at the Melbourne Town Hall was something quite spectacular. What fun and excitement!

Being a stroke survivor, joining the choir has developed my social enjoyment of belonging, encouraged me to keep doing what I like and meeting local people. I was given a 3% chance of survival, yet here I am! Singing makes me happy. I had also played the flute since year 9 but hadn’t done so for about two years, which was sad. However, a member of the Creativity Australia staff recently granted my wish for lessons!

I want to be in a music group. I’m currently learning how to be a Laughter Yoga Leader, which is fun. If more people sung there would be less unhappiness, violence, and broken hearts. I am glad I am in a choir!’’
