We are delighted to invite you to join us under the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square on Wednesday 22 December, 6pm-7pm, to sing with us as part of our unique choir - the Making Music Christmas Stars.
The choir will be formed of Making Music staff, members, volunteers and supporters. Accompanied by musicians, we will be performing popular carols from the Carols for Choirs books, and collecting funds to help us to continue championing participation in music making across the UK.
Anyone can join in, so don’t worry if you're not an expert singer – the emphasis is firmly on fun! Whilst we will be singing in four-part harmony, each line will be supported by an instrument in order to help us find our pitches. If you aren't confident about reading and singing harmony lines, you can choose to sing the tune. We welcome singers of any age and ability, so if you would like to bring friends and family along with you please feel free – the more the merrier!
What will I need to bring?
In mid-December (about a week before the event takes place) we will be sending out more specific details including a list of carols. We will have plenty of word sheets available on the day if you choose to stick to the tune. Harmony singers will need to bring either:
- a copy of 100 Carols for Choirs, OR
- copies of both Carols for Choirs 1 AND Carols for Choirs 2.
There is no dress code - please just dress warmly, and wear something Christmassy if you can!
Singing at this unique and atmospheric London location will be a very special experience, so whether you sing regularly or not, we hope that you will come along and add your voice to our festive choir.
We aim to make our events as accessible as possible. If you have any particular accessibility requirements or if there is anything else we can do to help make the event a better experience for you, please let us know.
Making Music reserves the right to cancel an event due to low attendance numbers, adverse weather conditions or other circumstances which make it no longer possible to run the event. If you have booked a place and Making Music cancels the event, we will offer you a full refund where applicable.
