Boats provide the physical means for movement on water, they are buoyant and shaped to provide stability. The boat can symbolize a journey on the sea of life, the ups and downs, joys and thoughts of pleasure and fun filled days.

Women of Notes – Ruth Schoenheimer, choir leader
Women of Notes began almost 25 years ago at the Donvale Living and learning Centre.
During those years we’ve sung for local council events, art gallery openings, private parties, retirement villages, flash mobs, and at our annual Big Sings with choirs and singers from all around Melbourne.
We’ve sung with people from many places around the world, delighting in the sharing of music and culture.
We’ve sung at the funerals of a few of our beloved choir members, and discovered both how difficult it is to sing whilst crying, and also how magically the human voice, folded into song, transforms grief into something more bearable.
We’ve helped raise funds for neighbourhood house programs, asylum seekers, cancer research, fire and flood victims and many other wonderfully worthy causes.
Women of Notes are proudly and passionately dedicated to making joy through our music, both for ourselves and for our community.
