Everybody Sing!

Part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London Autumn Series 2016

Add to my Calendar 14-10-2016 19:30 14-10-2016 21:30 36 Everybody Sing! For this very special concert in the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London, we welcome three choirs drawn from workplaces and the community, proving that everyone can indeed sing! The programme will feature a real range of music from Adele to Uruguayan Folk Music, and Beethoven to Bill Withers, so we’re sure there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Citi UK’s Choir was formed by Gareth Malone for his 2013 BBC TV series The Choir: Sing While You Work. Since then it has gone from strength and now sings regularly at charity fundraisers in venues including St James’s Palace in London and Cipriani’s in New York, and recently won Music in Offices 2016 Choir of the Year competition. Runner-up in that competition, The Telegraph Choir, was founded in 2012 to give employees of the newspaper a break from the busy media environment and enjoy singing together. They perform at the Telegraph’s annual carol service at St Bride’s in Fleet Street and recently sang in the courtyard of the Royal Academy as part of the Summer Exhibition. These two office choirs will be joined by Woolwich Singers, a community choir bringing together people from all walks of life to sing together in a fun, safe and supportive environment. Founded in 2012, highlights of the choir’s past seasons have included singing for the Woolwich Christmas Lights switch-on ceremony, and as part of a massed choir at the 2015 England vs New Zealand Rugby League International. St Paul's Church, London DD/MM/YYYY
