Our Mission statement: Citizens of the World Choir is a choir for people who are refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and friends. We provide a safe space for refugees to express themselves through music, as well as creating a diverse, friendly social community. We are non-politically affiliated and use our platform to advocate for refugee rights and human rights, to demonstrate the powerful contribution that refugees and immigrants make to our society.
About us: COTW was established in March 2017 by a group of humanitarian and musical professionals. In a short time, the choir has brought together people from over 24 different nationalities in a musical project that has already had four very successful seasons.
Find out more about our team, members and performances across the website, as well as information about joining the choir.
Keep an eye on our performances page for our season dates and stay tuned for more information by following our Twitter or Facebook!
If you'd like to make a contribution to the Citizen's of the World choir, through making a donation we would love to welcome you to our community as a friend, sponsor and/or fellow humanitarian.
£10 a month could pay for refugee members to catch a train to our rehearsal and become part of our community. For many, this has reinvigorated their lives and this involves JUST a train ticket!
£30 a month could pay for the rehearsal room hire cost for one rehearsal (we have this at a 70% discount) but we need access to a piano. Our musicians work for free which is already amazing value, but we have rehearsal overheads.
£50 a month could pay for four hours of admin work, from accounting (we are a not for profit organisation), concert planning and management.
£250 a month could pay for one rehearsal outright making you a super fan of our choir!
A one-off donation of £950 would allow us to reach out to more members and change more peoples lives, as well as pay for concert opportunities in world-leading UK festivals.
