Creativity Australia's With One Voice program is thrilled to present Sydney Sings. This is a mixed community/business choir of 60-100 people based at Pitt St Church and sponsored by Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation. This choir involves executives and employees from various city businesses, unemployed people, those with disabilities and migrants. The choir commenced in May 2012 and presents performances for charities and major conferences and special events as well as performing in concerts and festivals.
The choir members range in age from 13 to 85 years old and represent 15 nations and different faiths. Some members of the choir speak little or no English but this program is helping them to learn. The aim of the choir is to bridge social capital as well as develop training and mentoring opportunities and employment pathways. For participants it is an opportunity to develop leadership potential, build self esteem, communication and innovation skills. They also learn how to work as a team to meet challenges by unlocking their creative potential.
The With One Voice program inspires people to find their voice. When many diverse voices come together as "one voice", the outcomes are transformational.
The choir was founded by social entrepreneur Tania de Jong AM and is conducted by the inspiring Liz Lecoanet and performs a variety of music including dynamic African gospel songs, Australian songs and all time favourite hits such as Amazing Grace, What A Wonderful World, Imagine, That’s What Friends Are For, You'll Never Walk Alone, I am Australian, Waltzing Matilda and lots more!
There are places available in the choir for those of you who would love to sing (even if you never have before), and help some people less fortunate than yourselves to gain confidence, get a job, learn English, find friends, etc.
