One Day One Choir is an inspiring music project which asks people everywhere, especially in schools, to get together and raise their voices for World Peace Day on September 21st.
The initiative uses the ‘harmonious and uniting power of singing together as a step forward to peace and unity’ on a global scale. Since the event began in 2014, more than a million people in over 70 countries, from all walks of life and types of singing groups, have joined in.
Groups of all sizes, levels, genres and styles can take part: from schools and symphony choirs to community, faith, friend, social, fun or work place groups. You can choose whatever repertoire resonates with you, and you can pick any kind of venue: hotels, hospitals, parks, work places, playgrounds, faith buildings, on the street, in concert halls, care homes, stations, prisons, shopping malls, public squares – even in a car!
You can also sing what you like, as long as it’s appropriate for peace and unity, or you can dedicate a song or something you are already performing on 21 September at a concert, service, rehearsal or event. You can also download and sing new songs composed for One Day One Choir from the website.
Share your videos and photos on social media on the day, and tag #OneDayOneChoir to join the movement for peace.
