Citizens of the World Choir is so much more than a choir.
We are a professional musical organisation that advocates for understanding, dignity and kindness through the transformative impact of music and song.We offer expert musical training, diverse opportunities, sustain a thriving and safe community for displaced people and work as an integrated part of the refugee support and solidarity network in the UK.Alongside our regular rehearsals we keep our family together by providing pastoral care & support, data packages and devices to keep people connected, as well as covering travel costs and wherever we can contributing to emergency food and medical costs. At every turn, we focus on our members’ strengths to empower self advocacy, improve mental health and build confidence.Finally, performing - it’s the thing we love most, it’s the thing that we’re the best at, and it is our most powerful tool to counter the hostile narratives around immigration and migrants. We use our voices to stand up for people seeking safety in the UK and to ensure people can live with dignity, rebuild their lives and contribute to their communities.
