About the Role

We are looking for a highly motivated and creative organiser to manage our Brighton choir involving people impacted by homelessness.

CWNN has been running choirs and building joyful musical communities involving homeless and marginalised people since 2008, and we currently have choirs in Birmingham, Liverpool, London, Cardiff, Brighton and Coventry.  Our choirs are run on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build confidence, skills and genuine, long-lasting friendships. All our choirs rehearse weekly, 47 weeks of the year, and share a meal together at the end of rehearsal.
