* Cork City Council to support new multicultural community singing groups, as part of the One Town One Voice initiative
* Singing groups to reflect cultural diversity in Cork today
*Calling community members to lead the group, both musically and organisationally
Cork City Council is pleased to partner with the One Town One Voice initiative in establishing multicultural singing groups for Cork City.
The One Town One Voice initiative aims to establish secular community singing groups made up of Irish people and those who have moved to towns from other countries in recent years. The aim is to use communal singing to bring people together regardless of nationality, enable and enhance greater community integration and build closer communities.
Towns can take part in the initiative by establishing adult singing groups that are open to all (no audition required!), and seeking a diverse membership that reflects the beautiful cultural diversity of your town.
With support from Cork City Council, One Town One Voice will establish groups in areas across the city, starting with a group in Knocknaheeny and Gurranabraher.
We are currently seeking a Musical Lead for the group, as well as community volunteers interested in helping organisationally or with member recruitment. If you are interested please contact Mark Kelly (Cork City Community Warden) at 086 135 1253.
Our vision is that ‘The One Voice Singers’ will be true community groups for Cork City, lead by members of the community, in partnership with the community. Our goal is to enable and encourage connections between people who might otherwise not meet or would not feel part of the same community, and then to help those connections flourish…all the while having great musical fun!
