The Choir was created in around 2011 and came out of various community choir projects. It has been supported by London Borough of Newham in different ways but is on the whole a self funded choir.
The choir performs across the borough and at different events in other parts of London – such as The London Landmarks Half Marathon. Some of the photos of these events are on the Gallery page.
See a film made about the choir preparing for a concert at Durning Hall Forest Gate in a cold February in 2014:
The choir is led by singer and arts facilitator Sovra Newman, www.sovranewman.com . The choir’s pianist is Tim Smith.
