Hobsons Bay residents have an exciting opportunity to lift their spirits and connect with their community through the power of song.

With One Voice Hobson’s Bay community choir is actively seeking new members and offers a free introductory session to visitors who are curious to learn more.

The choir prides itself on being an inclusive community where no auditions or prior experience are necessary.

It’s open to all ages, abilities, faiths, cultures, and genders, providing a nurturing environment for everyone to find their voice.

Choir member Henry Zun said it’s convenient to have a community choir whose members are welcoming and friendly.

“As a singer and guitarist I have performed many gigs, been involved in liturgical music and was a guitar teacher at different stages spanning 50 years. Now in retirement, I still want to broaden and maintain my interest and involvement in music,” Mr Zun said.

“By coincidence, I read an article in the Star Weekly about 12 months ago concerning the launching of the Hobson’s Bay Community choir in Altona and decided to join the choir in July last year.

“I enjoy the variety of the music genres at choir rehearsals and gigs, such as blues, folk rock, pop and the wonderful harmony arrangements produced by our talented music director and conductor, Steph Payne. There is just something special in being part of a choir. It’s the social setting, the sharing of banter and laughter. It’s the joy and exhilaration in the joining of voices to produce wonderful sounds.”

With One Voice Hobson’s Bay community choir meets on Fridays from 1.30pm to 2:30pm at the Louis Joel Centre in Altona.
