Choir with No Name Liverpool: a magical debut

In March, we celebrated the first ever gig of our newest choir - the Choir with No Name Liverpool!

Our eight-week-old choir got together with local community choirs - the Continuing Education Choir, the University Singers, South Sefton Singers and MASC - to stage a joint gig at our rehearsal venue, the Bluecoat arts centre in Liverpool city centre. 

Each choir performed a few numbers - we did 'Let the Sunshine In' and 'Stand by Me' - and we finished off a fantastic evening with a massive choir medley of Beatles songs (of course!).

What a totally brilliant evening it was. You can check out photo highlights from the night here

The Liverpool was launched in January, and it's been rehearsing every Wednesday night at the Bluecoat.

Rehearsals are led by our wonderful choir director Meike Holzmann, who fills each rehearsal with energy, fun and lots of laughs. After the singing, we always sit down and eat a hot dinner together, cooked by our team of fantastic volunteers. The choir already has 17 regular members, and there's still room for more - we are actively recruiting.

Everything is summed up perfectly in this poem written by a choir member, George Balmer. Here's an extract:

Thank your for songs,

For finding my voice;

My past was all wrong

But now I have choice.

I write this poem

As I go on, higher and higher.

I found a home

In your happy, anonymous choir.

You can read the entire poem, and George writing about his experiences, over on our blog.
