It is well known that community choirs in particular have a long-standing tradition of fundraising and charity work. In fact, we wrote about the very subject in our blog last April.
One of the most powerful ways in which choirs can make a real difference is when they come together and join forces for a common cause and there is perhaps no better example of this that the ‘Sing For Water’ initiative, which from humble beginnings has now raised over £1 million for Water Aid.
The idea behind the Sing For Water initiative is that choirs all over the country learn a set number of songs separately and then come together in large collaborative concerts to sing them.
We are therefore delighted that one of our songs has been chosen as one of the set pieces of music for this years events! Craig’s arrangement of ‘Pokarekare Ana’ has been selected as one of seven pieces originating from different parts of the world.
Events for 2020 are starting to be announced all over the country, so if you’re interested in getting involved, google your nearest even and get stuck in!
A great way to start of course, would be to download our song and start practising! It will continue to be freely available here all year.
