Voices united for harmony

 

Overview

The Voices united for harmony project aims to improve the mental, physical and social wellbeing of Indigenous people in Queensland through singing. As part of the project, multiple community choirs have been established by Aboriginal Medical Services across the state. Membership of the choirs is open to people of diverse cultures, ages and musical abilities. The choirs give participants the opportunity to choose, learn, rehearse and publicly perform a variety of uplifting songs. Some of the choirs are supported by musically experienced leaders.

Choirs that have thus far been established under the Voices united for harmony umbrella include:

The project, which is jointly managed by Griffith University and the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council, will be formally evaluated. Further choirs are currently being established across Queensland.
