I joined Ashburton’s With One Voice choir about three years ago as I wanted something of my own to do.
Personally, this wasn’t enough for me, and I went looking for another activity. That’s when I found With One Voice Ashburton.
Six months later, Jon joined me. We both really enjoy singing and have always been involved with music in some way, and now singing is something we are working at improving. I never took myself as a singer, but our conductor, Kym, is very talented, extremely inclusive and fun.
Since January of 2017, I have been volunteering at the Ashburton choir. I take care of memberships, attendance and I also manage the database. This month, we have already had seven newcomers – and four of them have already become members!
I encourage anyone to come and give it a go! Just do it! The community within the choir is so kind and supportive, and we really do have a lot of fun!
