If you enjoyed taking part in Make Music Day, how about joining a global singing initiative of harmony and friendship on the 21st of September, which is when the United Nations celebrates the International Day of Peace?
One Day One Choir is 'an inspiring global peace initiative that uses the harmonious power of singing together to unite people around the world'. Since the event began in 2014, more than a million people, from all walks of life and a huge array of different singing groups, have joined in and sung in more than 50 countries.
Groups of all sizes, levels, genres and styles can join: from schools and symphony choirs to community, faith, friend, social, fun or work place groups. You can choose whatever repertoire resonates with you, and you are also free to pick any kind of venue: hotels, hospitals, parks, work places, playgrounds, faith buildings, on the street, in concert halls, care homes, stations, prisons, shopping malls, public squares – even in a car! One school in America literally sang from their rooftop ‘so that everyone (in Chicago) could hear them.’
To sign up and add your voice to this growing global initiative for peace, complete this online form. The project's aim is to create the largest choir in the world, singing for unity and peace, by 2018.
