Choir with No Name
The Choir with No Name runs choirs for homeless and marginalised people. They’re a diverse bunch of folks; all genders, all colours, all ages - everyone is welcome.
They sing pop, rock, soul, gospel, reggae, musicals... you name it, they’ll give it a go. They have choirs in Birmingham, Liverpool and London and their latest has been set up Brighton, in partnership with Brighton Housing Trust. Each choir gets together to rehearse every week (with a decent dinner at the end of rehearsal!) and they perform regularly.
They were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build up your confidence and abilities.
The Brighton choir, run in partnership with BHT, opened in August 2018. They rehearse weekly on Monday evenings at 6.30pm at One Church in the city centre. The Brighton rehearsals follow the usual CWNN format of tea, biccies and a chat before rehearsal, then 1 1/2 hours of joyful singing followed by a free hot meal for members. Splendid!
No need to register or audition - all you have to do is turn up and enjoy yourself!
If you have any questions about joining the choir, get in touch with Alex - her details are below.
Thank you so much to everyone for being involved. Please spread the word, we are looking for new members to join in and have a great time. Please just turn up on the day if you would like to be involved, you do not need to be a good singer, it is just about having fun.
