SINGING OUR LIVES is a ground-breaking project bringing displaced people and those seeking sanctuary and local communities together with professional musicians to compose new music and perform together.
The Singing Our Lives project, now in its 6th year, brings together people from local UK and refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds to compose and perform new music together. In June 2022 the project culminates with the premiere of Under the Same Sun – a performance featuring hundreds of performers onstage to celebrate the Refugee Week theme of ‘Healing’ through music and song.
At The Union Chapel in Islington, Together Productions is presenting an evening filled with incredible song and music from around the globe. Hosted by Jumoké Fashola and featuring performances from Members of the Orchestra of Syrian Musicians, Mind & Soul, Mixed Up Chorus, Music Connects, Sing For Freedom Choir, United Strings of Europe, Thames Opera Company and Write to Life.
Singing Our Lives 2022 is produced in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and Union Chapel, with generous support from the Arts Council England.
Join in the spirit of solidarity and hope for the finale of Refugee Week.
