My life is full and happy with interesting work, family and friends. But too often a full life can become a frantic life. At choir, I can forget about lists and obligations.
I also discovered that choir filled a need I didn’t know I had: to be creative and to express myself. I was even inspired to start singing lessons at the age of 50!
I love knowing that the donation I make to the choir supports others – not just those looking for help with work or study, but those looking to connect and find meaning in their world. For some of our members, choir is the highlight of their week.
As the volunteer Secretary of a With One Voice choir, I also try to foster a strong sense of belonging among our members. Not hard to do, because ours is a choir with a beautiful spirit – open, accepting, caring and with a great sense of fun.
I’d love to see us still going strong in ten years time, with even more members, more songs, more gigs – while still holding on to that special spirit we’ve built over the past three years.
