Everybody is welcome to join the With One Voice Footscray choir, which recently moved into a new home at the African Australian Community Centre.
The new venue coincides with the launch of Sing Your Story, a program which invites members of the local community to bring a song from the country of their birth to With One Voice Footscray. The choir will learn the songs and perform them in public. So whether you have a song from Africa, China, Sweden, India or anywhere in between – come along and celebrate diversity through song!
Bridget a’Beckett, Conductor of With One Voice Footscray, said it’s an exciting time for the choir and everyone is welcome to join.
“With One Voice Footscray has been together for almost three years the move feels like a big step in the right direction for us,” Bridget said.
With One Voice Footscray is part of Creativity Australia’s With One Voice choir program. The choirs welcome people from all walks of life, building bridges of understanding across cultural, generational, socioeconomic barriers in pursuit of harmony. There are no auditions and no singing experience is necessary.
“We’ll be easy to find so I hope that leads to new members dropping in for a peek, and staying forever.”
The science of singing is proven to make you healthier, happier and smarter. Plus, the choir is a great place to find friends and mentors, improve your wellbeing, learn new skills, build your employability and even find a job! So stop singing in the shower and come along to With One Voice Footscray!
