“The choir is feeling more and more like a family, with strong friendships and connections being made within a diverse group of people. The songs and music bring us all together with common themes that share the goodness in humanity, peace, and the light of the world.”– Heather Frahn and Michelle Byrne, Co-Conductors of WOV Choir Kingston Park
First in SA
The With One Voice Kingston Park choir was the first With One Voice Choir established in South Australia. Many of our choir members are local, coming from the southern beach suburbs but we also have people who travel from the other side of Adelaide to come and join us, for singing and supper on Wednesday nights.
It’s a ‘Goldilocks’ choir
Not too formal, not too casual, it’s the perfect mix of learning and fun. Quite a few of our choir members have sung in different choirs for many years. Others have never sung outside of the shower or their car, and some didn’t even get into their high school musical! But here, all voices are welcome.
Not 1 but 2 choir leaders
We love our fabulous choir leaders, Heather Frahn and Michelle Byrne. They’re professional singers and musicians, love what they do and bring their wonderful Earth Mother energy and enthusiasm to lead our choir — with not only their voices but guitar and drum, too!
Our songs are quite unique. World music. Traditional songs from tribes and cultures across the globe, plus original songs composed by Heather and Michelle.
If you love the idea of singing in a group, learning beautiful songs and creating harmony, come join us.
Most of you would know me from music and sound in some way. But did you know that I also make jewellery? I studied jewellery making in the late 1990’s when I was a youngster, and over the years I’ve really enjoyed dabbling in it still, even though music has been my main creative focus. I love natural materials like wood, twine, shells and seeds. I’m very chuffed to announce that my good friend Sally Francis and daughter Isla, have invited me to have some of my handmade hemp jewellery in their new sustainable shop ‘Perhaps Hand’, situated in a groovy little spot in Adelaide’s city.
Go grab yourself a gift, or buy up on sustainable items for Christmas for your loved ones at ‘Perhaps Hand’!
Here’s the details about ‘Perhaps Hand’:
Run by Sally and Isla Francis, the ‘perhaps hand’ store promotes sustainable living through the sale of recycled and handmade goods, including clothing, books, jewellery, artworks, skin care and homeware products.
They make it easy for you to buy responsibly with the health of our future in mind. Feel good about purchasing with 5% of their sales donated to Conservation SA. Based at The Mill artist precinct in Adelaide, the ‘perhaps hand’ store is situated in a lively arts environment and is located adjacent to the central gallery space, which hosts an ongoing artist residency program, and other creative retail outlets (see website for more details).
Opening Hours: Fridays 10am – 6pm, and Saturdays 11am-5pm
Address: The Mill, 154 Angas St, Adelaide SA 5000

I have had the privilege of working for the Hutt Street Centre for the last few years off and on with music and wellbeing programs. The staff at Hutt St do an amazing job by supporting people who are homeless, at risk, or vulnerable.

A music and wellbeing project of Hutt Street Centre
Rock Your Sole is a concert featuring live music from “The Outsiders”, “The Harmony Weavers” women’s community choir, and “The JMG Band”. All proceeds go to Hutt Street Centre.
This year I have had the honour of co-facilitating weekly singing for wellbeing sessions with Michelle Byrne, working with a beautiful group of women from all walks of life. The women’s singing group “The Harmony Weavers” has been created to provide a safe space for women to share and enjoy the benefits of music and meaningful connection.
Our singing sessions are leading toward a community performance ‘Rock Your Sole’ on Saturday November 18th 2017. We are all excited about this concert, and hope you can come along and make a donation to Hutt St Centre, and enjoy the show for the afternoon. See you there for this lovely day of community, connection, and celebration.
