Community Choirs in Australia: Contribution to Community

The contributions made by community choirs to their local communities are diverse and significant (Figure 12). Almost all respondents (92%) indicated that they perform some kind of community service, the highest ranking of the options given being ‘performing at community events’ (87%) followed by ‘free performances’ (75%).   Many other activities were mentioned as ways in which choirs contribute to their community: mentoring generalist teachers in local primary schools, singing for church services, promoting the work of Australian composers, singing at political demonstrations and events, and supporting music students through scholarships.
