Projects: Singing For Freedom
About the choir:
The Sing for Freedom choir was founded by the charity Freedom From Torture in 2016. The choir is made up of clients and ex-clients of the charity, along with supporters, staff and local residents across boroughs including Camden, Islington and Haringey. It has been a huge benefit and joy to all its members! As one of the members says "One of the worst things about torture is that it silences you….the choir has given me back a voice".
Through rehearsals and performances the choir has created a strong community with therapeutic bonds formed between the refugees and asylum seekers who have made their homes in the UK after facing extreme difficulties in their countries of origin. The choir has changed lives. Our members have been able to share their love of singing and developed friendships across different ages, nationalities, languages and faiths.
Sadly, Freedom From Torture is no longer able to support the choir financially and since July 2018 the choir has ceased meeting.
Please help us to save this special and life changing choir by helping it to continue to expand and grow!
Together Productions and the Mixed Up Chorus are holding an evening of singing, music and festive celebration which is also a fundraiser for the Sing for Freedom choir on Tuesday 11 December at Hargrave Hall, N19 5SP at 8pm.
The programme will include short performances from the Mixed Up Chorus, members of the Sing for Freedom Choir and local due Tabley Bellows, as well as a raffle with prizes including a one-on-one singing lesson with our director Jeremy Haneman!
