Bristol Harbourside is the place to be on Saturday afternoon (6th July 2013) when Sing for Water West comes to town!
A massed choir of 1,000 voices drawn from community choirs across the south-west will gather to perform watery themed songs to raise money for WaterAid.
Busking starts at lunchtime when the big choir splits into its individual ones to show off their own talents after the morning’s rehearsal .
At 1pm, the Tropical Discovery Marquee opens for kids of all ages and then the singers assemble at 3pm for THE BIG SING! The song selection includes hits by Rihanna and Carly Simon, plus gospel, African and Georgian vibes.
At 4pm the WOMAD stage opens, with 3 world artists set to perform. To round things off Harbour cruises on The Matthew are available at 12pm, 1pm and 4.30pm.
Your blog’s editor, plus Group Communications Director Mark Charlton’s wife will be singing their socks off on the day! It’s a wonderfully relaxed, family oriented event and it would be great to see you there!
If you’re wondering what a choir of 1,000 sounds like, take a look at the video here from Sing for Water West in 2011. That was a choir of 850 – 1,000 will be awesome!
