We're asking choirs and music groups up and down the country to host gigs and singing events in Spring 2017 to fundraise for The Choir with No Name!
Join us to celebrate the power of singing together — and help keep our life-changing choirs for people affected by homelessness singing well into the future...
All Together Now! #ATN2017
Singing makes you feel good - it is amazing for your mental and physical wellbeing and is simply THE best way to make friends and have fun. We know this. You know this. Now we want everyone else to know this...!
SO...whether you fancy hosting a full scale choir concert, an open mic night at your local community centre,a karaoke event with your mates or a simple whip round at choir rehearsal, as long as your event involves singing and supporting our choirs, it gets a double thumbs up from us!
Already putting on a choir concert in Spring 2017? Why not use it to fundraise for us too!
Our choirs are a friendly, welcoming place where members who have experienced homelessness, or are otherwise marginalised, can form lasting friendships, build their confidence and get their lives back on track. They become a member of a supportive family, learn new skills and experience the simple joy of singing shoulder to shoulder with good friends. Our choirs are changing lives, one song at a time.
The best thing about the choir is that it's a safe place to be - very welcoming and friendly. I feel at home when I'm here. It's like a family. The singing is great fun, then there's a lovely family meal at the end of the evening. I feel completely confident and accepted here.
Through your amazing musical and fundraising efforts, you will be directly helping our members to shine and get their lives back on track, meaning our choirs can keep supporting people who've experienced homelessness well into the future.
HOW CAN I JOIN IN?
Do you sing in a choir or vocal group and want to put on an All Together Now! concert or gig? Not in a choir but want to join in anyway? No problem!
SING OUR ALL TOGETHER NOW! ANTHEM
Our choir members have chosen a song that they feel best represents what being in our choirs mean to them, and we'd like everyone who's hosting an ATN event to sing the anthem! They have chosen Three Little Birds (Don't Worry About a Thing) by Bob Marley. You know, this one:
You can buy vocal arrangements for the song online and also find lyrics, so get creative and sing your own unique version! We'd love to see everyone's performances of the anthem, so send your video or audio clips to email@example.com and we'll share them on social media.
OUR CHOIRS CHANGE LIVES...
Our choirs truly make a difference and help to lift someone from the circumstances that may have led them to become homeless, setting them on the road to a positive future. Find out more about our choirs HERE
