Our choir welcomes all people; of all ages, faiths and walks of life to come together to sing songs from a wide range of styles and eras, and of many cultural traditions. We are led by Nicki Johnson and Craig Barrie and meet weekly to sing, laugh, share a cuppa, supper and chat.

Our choir is part of With One Voice, a network of communities that harness the power of singing together to connect people from diverse backgrounds. For over 12 years WOV has brought people together into groups that grow into communities that support and empower each other, care for one another and solve problems locally, through the well-documented benefits of community singing.

WITH ONE VOICE: TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD… ONE VOICE AT A TIME.

Creativity Australia’s With One Voice program operates in Victoria, New South Wales, ACT, SA, WA, Tasmania and Queensland. The inclusive community choirs unite hundreds of people aged 9 to 90, from all faiths and all walks of life: migrants, people with disabilities, job seekers, executives, seniors, students, refugees, asylum seekers, introverts, extroverts and more. WOV choirs are led by professional conductors and meet weekly, followed by supper.

Come along and see for yourself how much fun singing with the choir is – no experience necessary, everyone is welcome. See other choir locations.  

You are welcome to attend trial sessions before joining –– no need to pre-register, just come along!

WHY WE SING

Neuroscience proves singing makes people happier, healthier, smarter and more creative and increases neuroplasticity.  Music and singing have no barriers of language, background or politics. Unlike sport, music is non-competitive – the participants are working together to create something greater than themselves as individuals – and the results are transformative. The choirs transcend borders every week, and in public through regular performances.

OUR IMPACT

Swinburne University research showed 98% of With One Voice choir participants experienced less stress, 91% improved social bonds and 66% feel less depressed. 

Here are some of the testimonials from our participants to further illustrate the impact of these life-changing programs.
