Over 50 choirs from across the UK will travel to The Scoop at More London to sing together, in a spectacular massed choir concert, raising money for WaterAid. Sing for Water features a varied and international repertoire of songs making global connections through water.
Sing for Water was initiated by composer Helen Chadwick and the Mayor’s Thames Festival in 2002 to raise money for WaterAid. Over the last 10 years, Sing for Water events around the UK have raised over £564,668 for WaterAid projects in India, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Malawi, bringing clean water, sanitation and hygiene education to thousands of people.
Just prior to the Sing for Water concert at 3pm, some of the choirs sing extracts from their own repertoire by the entrance to the LG Legal building above The Scoop at More London:
