The Choir with No Name (CWNN) Liverpool, a choir involving people impacted by homelessness, successfully kicked-off our city’s festive season with a big Christmas singalong at the Tung Auditorium, Oxford Street, on Friday 8th December. The annual festive event saw the Choir join a host of special guests in starting the season in the best way possible – with a rip-roaring, fun-filled Christmas extravaganza as crowds gathered to join in the singing of their favourite festive songs.
Building on the success of its annual ‘Big Gig’ at the Everyman earlier this year, The Choir with No Name were joined by special guests the Liverpool UNIty Choir and the Asylum Link Merseyside Choir for an evening of truly joyful performances, filled with festive magic and sing-alongs chosen to release the Christmas spirit, and raise the roof of the auditorium, with the audience in fine voice.
CWNN Liverpool Choir Manager, Ema Quinn, said: “We and our fabulous special guests were delighted to be able to treat our audience to some real Christmas magic, as we welcomed so many people to our inclusive, positive and joy-filled show, spreading the festive cheer far and wide. As well as being bags of fun, the profits made through ticket sales and donations on the night support the cost of keeping our weekly choir rehearsal running and our members singing well into the future, which will be the very best Christmas present for us all!”
The Choir with No Name is a UK charity running choirs involving homeless and marginalised people since 2008. The Liverpool choir was founded in January 2014 and has been a joyful choir community for some of the most isolated and disadvantaged residents in the city ever since. The Choir is a supportive family where a conventional family may not exist and singing together is proven to be hugely beneficial to health and wellbeing, meaning members build the support network, self-confidence and resilience needed to move away from homelessness long term. The choir rehearse on Wednesdays at The Quaker Meeting House, School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT. Doors open at 6.30pm for a cuppa and catch up before singing together and sitting down for a hot dinner together afterwards, cooked by a team of volunteers.
