Community Spirit is a project run by Town Hall Symphony Hall in partnership with THSH Associate Artists, Black Voices.  The project offers local community choirs the opportunity to share repertoire and perform as a collective in a large-scale concert in Symphony Hall.

While our iconic venues are closed as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, Community Spirit workshops continue online thanks to the generous support of Westhill Endowment. 

How to take part

  • Secure your place by booking a free ticket – please select your vocal range (it will automatically select alto), to ensure that at the session we have a broad mix of sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.
  • You will receive an e-mail nearer the workshop date with a link to the online workshop – which will be run through a Zoom meeting

Who can apply?

  • People of all ages and abilities from Community Choirs based in the Birmingham & West Midlands area
  • Previous project participants of Community Spirit and newcomers 

This year Community Spirit was due to celebrate 10 years as a choral music festival. Community Spirit’s 10th Anniversary will now take place at Symphony Hall on Sunday 4 July 2021


Group singing crafts togetherness in communities; your gift means choir members can regularly experience the joy of singing.
