Join us in Symphony Hall on Sunday 9 July, at 6pm, for an uplifting evening celebrating the best choirs and home grown talent in the West Midlands! Enjoy music from nine community choirs on a theme of 'Voices in harmony, sharing life and culture in Birmingham'.

Discover a wide variety of musical styles including folk, pop, and gospel, and also includes songs in Polish and Zulu. New this year is a special free Foyer gig from 4.30pm – where you can enjoy music from Falcon Lodge Community Choir, Changes UK, and the Choir with No Name.

Community Spirit began life in 2009 as a project between Town Hall Symphony Hall and Town Hall Associate Artists, Black Voices.

Community choirs apply to participate in the project, and then work together with our Creative Producer, Carol Pemberton CBE, to decide on repertoire. Weekly choir rehearsals in each community, and mass rehearsals over several months, produce a wonderful evening of song.

We hope you’ll enjoy this year’s special concert – not to be missed!
