Singing Our Lives

This summer, music will unite refugees, migrants and British choir members for the Singing Our Lives (SOL) concert showcasing original music that celebrates the strength and resilience of the refugees and migrants.
The concert marks the culmination of a unique creative process bringing together five amateur choirs and professional musicians through a series of workshops aimed at fostering unity among the diverse groups. The concert is the final apogee in a process that explored the themes of justice, changing seasons, and the cultural adjustment process, in addition to hearing real-life accounts from choir members.

Over 200 performers will participate in the event at Milton Court, hosted by Together Productions, in partnership with IOM- the UN Migration Agency, Freedom from Torture, the Royal Opera House, Improbable, and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Singing Our Lives combines opera, classical, popular and electronic genres with music from around the globe and performed by the Mixed Up Chorus, the Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus, and the Sing for Freedom Choir, and Guildhall School musicians, Woven Gold and Stile Antico.
