MUSIC DECLARES EMERGENCY
JOIN CHOIRS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO STAND UP FOR THE PLANET ON OCTOBER 30th.
Major Events in Liverpool, Glasgow, Bristol, and London
Local events across the UK
On October 30th, Music Declares Emergency are inviting everyone to take part in a national musical moment in support of action on climate.
Across the country, choirs large and small will be joining together in local venues and spaces and taking over social media to perform a new version of ‘What A Wonderful World’, arranged by Mark De Lisser, the man behind the stunning performance of ‘Stand By Me’ at the wedding of Harry and Meghan.
We will be hosting major public events at iconic cultural landmarks in Liverpool, Bristol, Glasgow, and London and are ready to welcome singers young and old to the party as we ‘Sing The Change’ ahead of the start of the COP26 conference in Glasgow on November 1st. Details on venues will follow soon.
If you can’t make it to those events, we are encouraging everyone to come together and create their own moment. Whether it’s in the town square, the church hall, the skate park, or your own front room, we are inviting everyone to join in for a moment of national unity and celebration in support of the amazing planet we live on and the joy that our natural world brings us every day.
Our events will start at midday on October 30th but, if you can’t sing then, sing earlier, or later, or the day after. Even later in the week.
All the details of how to get involved are at https://www.musicdeclares.net/sing.
If you’re not a choral singer, you can still take part.
In a metal band? Give us your version of the song.
Part of a hip-hop crew? Let’s hear your take.
More free jazz? Blow our minds.
COP26 is a vital moment for the climate. The decisions made at Glasgow will affect our environment and our future for generations to come. By joining together to Sing The Change we can send a message to world leaders to stick to their promises and keep global temperature rises under the 1.5°c, the limit at which scientists tell us that we can avert the worst consequences of global warming.
Post your performances on social media with #SingTheChange to be part of the biggest sing song in UK history and help make our world a better place for all.
