You are warmly welcomed to share the joy of song at your local With One Voice choir family!
We're new to Meetup - but Creativity Australia (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au) has hundreds of amazing participants across our network of choirs (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/join/join-a-choir/) in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. In 2013, the program was named one of Australia's top social innovations!
Singing is the language of the heart. For centuries, singing has been central to community, culture and storytelling worldwide! Yet how many people dare to sing freely these days, apart from in the shower?
Every week, With One Voice choirs (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/join/join-a-choir/) unite hundreds of people, from over 40 nationalities, aged 9 to 90 in song. Age, race, religion, disability and disadvantage fade away. CEOs, seniors, students, migrants, refugees, families... Everyone is welcome.
The science of singing (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/research/choir-research/) is proven to make you healthier, happier, smarter and more creative. We believe empowered individuals and supportive communities are better placed to solve some of society's biggest challenges like loneliness and isolation, mental illness, homelessness, unemployment and more.
So stop singing in the shower and join us for songs and supper! Make friends, build your self-esteem, improve your wellbeing, perform on stage at amazing events, maybe even find a job through your new choir network... the opportunities are at your fingertips! Check out our testimonials (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/what-we-do/our-impact/) to read about other people's experiences with their With One Voice choir!
Once you've experience a With One Voice choir first-hand, if you decide to join, participation is by tax-deductible donation (we're a charity). Your donation is essential to help us provide professional conductors, venues, suppers, performances and other resources. Plus, your contribution sponsors people in need to attend a choir. Download the Welcome Letter/Registration Form (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Welcome-Registration-Form1.pdf), or just pick one up at choir!
Choirs run almost every week throughout the year, with a few week's break for the Christmas period. Do check our website to confirm we're not on break for a special event or gig this week: www.creativityaustralia.org.au (http://www.creativityaustralia.org.au/).
