The Choir with No Name Birmingham - summer spectacular

The Choir with No Name Birmingham, a choir for people whose lives have been affected by homelessness, is delighted to be holding its annual Summer Spectacular concert at the Midlands Arts Centre on July 25 from 7.30 - 10pm. The choir sing a quirky mixture of pop, rock, indie, soul and disco that encompasses all eras from the sixties to the present day. They were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build up your confidence and abilities.

Liz Viggers, Choir Manager says, "The Choir with No Name Birmingham has been running since October 2011 and we now have around 35 regular members. We help members to experience the happiness, sense of achievement and euphoria that music, and especially making music, can bring. The family feel and camaraderie is hugely important and gigs are a big highlight for members.”
For many of members the choir is a really significant part of their lives for the friendship and support it provides. Ian has been with the choir since it began. He says, “It gives me strength, hope, courage, support, laughter and friendship. I'd be lost without it. I have come a long way since joining the choir. I gained a voice I thought I never had.”

The Summer Spectacular gig, kindly supported by Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, will showcase all of the exciting work that the choir have done over the last year and include some enthusiastic renditions of brilliant pop classics backed by full band. Expect a great atmosphere, audience participation opportunities, and to leave feeling inspired and elated!

Tickets are priced at £5 and are available from www.macarts.co.uk
