    Lifting our voices to end violence against women: Hummingsong Choirs

    Author: Laura Melrose UNSW

    Published: 10th December 2020


    "The Hummingsong Choirs build “community”, bringing together women of all backgrounds and stages in life to sing, laugh, nourish their souls and build close-knit connections. The other important purpose is to extend support to those most vulnerable in the community, women and children escaping domestic violence."

  • The Chorus of Teamwork

    “I love to hear a choir. I love the humanity… to see the faces of real people devoting
    themselves to a piece of music. I like the teamwork. It makes me feel optimistic
    about the human race when I see them cooperating like that.”

    -  Sir Paul McCartney, CH and MBE, song writer, musician, record & film producer
    and most famously co-lead vocalist and bassist for the Beatles.

     

    Choirs are a marvel to listen to. Quite mesmerising. I also wonder how such a mix of people, ages, genders and skills come together to create such harmony that caresses your soul.

    There is usually a story or two behind most choirs and the one I’m sharing with you today is no exception. There is much that any leader of a team can learn from this story, what their leader does and why she has managed to literally mobilise an army of songbirds across Australia and indeed the World, by providing a platform to unleash their passion and ignite their soul.

  • HUMMINGSONG RE-LAUNCHES IN MELBOURNE - 3 LOCATIONS
  •  
  •  Date Posted: Tue, 9 Mar 2021
     

    What could be better than one Hummingsong Choir in Melbourne? 3!!! 


    We are elated to share with you this fabulous news that we have 3 beautiful passionate and inspiring conductors eagerly waiting to harness their own community choirs in 3 different locations in Melbourne.

    The joys of being part of a hub of choirs are endless. While everyone loves their own tribe that they are part of it is an extra special feeling knowing that you are part of something bigger than yourselves. Having 3 Hummingsong choirs in Melbourne brings the possibilities of future collaborations both within the Melbourne choirs itself but also with our family of choirs in Sydney! 

    We launch this opportunity for Melbourners with great confidence that it will be a rewarding thing to be part of - full of great new friendships - beautiful music - community oriented & a journey that you never know where it might lead! 

    Thank you for helping spread the news far and wide.
