With One Voice Geelong changing the world – one song at a time

October 20, 2015
IMG_6562A Geelong community choir hopes to change the world – one song at a time.With One Voice Geelong has been together for six years and now averages 50 singers at its weekly rehearsals – and growing. Conductor Kym Dillon said members came from all walks of life.

“The choir links different social groups that wouldn’t necessarily be linked elsewhere,” Mr Dillon said. “Singing breaks down the barriers and enables people to make connections or hang out together that otherwise would never have had that opportunity.

“Plus, everyone acts as a support; perhaps someone needs some sympathy or is looking for work.” Mr Dillon said his favourite choir moments were when people who had never before sung in front of an audience did so for the first time.

“They’re nervous but they’re always well supported by being part of a group. They’d never try public speaking but they can sing on stage at Melbourne Town Hall.”

The choir will perform at that venue again in a With One Big Voice concert on 8 November alongside other community and school choirs.
