Sing for Spring: Australia’s biggest sing-a-long

By  |  0 Comments

“The world would look really different if we sung more. I think there’d be less war, less  violence and more smiles. People would be less inhibited and more content. A sense of  community would be much easier to access.”
-Verity Hunt-Ballard, Sing for Spring Ambassador.

Creativity Australia Founder and Chair Tania de Jong is passionate about the proven benefits of singing your heart out… whether you’re a shower singer or an opera diva.  “We don’t care if you’ve never sung before. We want to have a bit of fun and get families, schools, workplaces and community groups together to sing a song, video it and enter it online. A nursery rhyme, office karaoke, campfire hip-hop, yodelling… the sky’s the
limit!”

Donations raised will help grow the With One Voice program, now with 15 choirs in three states- including one in St Kilda.

The choirs aim to empower individuals and build supportive communities through the joy of song across Australia.
Groups, regardless of singing experience, age, faith, language or culture – are invited to Sing for Spring and be in the running to be featured on the big screen at Federation Square on October 4.

“In these tough social and economic times, everyone can benefit from the incredible emotional and physical benefits that singing brings.

“The world doesn’t need any more ‘selfies’. It’s time to get out of our boxes, connect with our neighbour and really make a difference,” de Jong said.
