The Nest Collective's Fire Choir are recruiting singers now!

Fire Choir is a new, ‘open to all’ community choir dedicated to revitalising communal singing with political empowerment - and now, they want you, you and that beautiful singing voice.

Here's what they say:

Fire Choir, run by The Nest Collective, was founded by folk musician Sam Lee and choir leaders Blythe Pepino, Alex Etchart and Ben Crawley out of a year-long fellowship at the Foundling Museum. The choir is a vehicle to take rabble-rousing, soul-lifting chants and hollers to the streets, the auditoria, the recording studio and beyond. Singers will be tapping into the enormous and ancient international repertoire of songs rooted in social change and emancipation highlighting social and environmental injustice around the world. Material includes folk songs, modern songs, anti-war songs, songs of resistance and struggle, the natural world, songs of love and lost worlds. A portion of the Fire Choir repertoire has been specially-commissioned by The Nest Collective creating new songs sung from the perspective of contemporary communities struggling for a louder voice in society. Writers include some of the UK’s best songwriters and composers Dizraeli, Martha Tilston, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and others.

If you want to channel your love for this world, or discontent with it, through singing, or just discover your voice with like-minded (or unlike-minded) others, then Fire Choir is the singing family with fire in its belly for you.

Fire Choir meet every Monday 7-9pm during term time at Vernon Square, Kings Cross, London WC1X 9EP.
