One Day One Choir calls for choirs to unite on Peace Day

0 128

Global choral project for peace, One Day One Choir, is calling for choirs to unite in song on Peace Day, a United Nations initiative which takes place every year on 21 September.

One Day One Choir began in 2014 as a response to growing unrest and conflict in the world. Since then, more than a million people have joined in with the project, which aims to create the largest ‘choir’ in the world, singing for unity and peace, by September 2018.

Choirs that have sung with the project range from world-class ensembles such as the London Philharmonic Choir, Tenebrae and the Kenyan Boys Choir to school, community, faith, workplace and local choirs in more than 70 countries. To find out more, please click here.

Joining in with One Day One Choir

Any group of any size, age, talent, style or mix can join in with One Day One Choir here and choirs are invited to share what they are doing with their communities and on social media using #onedayonechoir.

Composer and broadcaster, Howard Goodall, said:

‘What a brilliant and inspiring idea. I urge anyone who loves their singing to join in and be a part of this mighty Chorus of Goodwill across the globe; making the unifying voice of song a unifying voice for peace.’
