Helen is thrilled to announce the launch of One World London! Rehearsals for the new London One World Choir start in earnest in September for performances in April & May 2019. Helen will be coaching the choir working on crafting the music, building in choreography and getting the show performance-ready. In the meantime there will be short sing-outs of music from the show at relevant events and rallies in the city. The choir sang at various locations at the recent Trump rally in the city on 13th July.
Acclaimed beat poet Chris Paradox will be writing & performing new spoken word pieces for the London One World shows. Chris has been performing his unique style of spoken word artistry for over ten years and is well known on the open mic and festival circuit. Check out Chris performing one of his poems ‘Attitude Kings’ by clicking here.
The information below is for the benefit of the London One World Choir.
Rehearsal schedule 2018:
Sat 8th September – Rehearsal
Sat 13th October – Rehearsal
Sat 10th November – Rehearsal
Sat 1st December – Rehearsal
Rehearsals in 2019:
Sat 12th January – Rehearsal
Sat 9th February – Rehearsal
Sat 9th March – Rehearsal
Sat 23rd March – Rehearsal
Sat 6th April – Dress Rehearsal
2018 rehearsals will take place at Church on the Corner in Angel, N1 0ET. Approximate times will be 10.30am – 4.30pm.
From January 2019 rehearsals will be at The Claremont Project, 24 White Lion St, N1 9PD
The rehearsals on the Saturdays mentioned above will run from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
The songs will be workshopped in an accumulating way, so that each week 2 or 3 songs will be crafted as well as previously completed songs being revised. It is expected that singers will arrive for these weekend rehearsals having listened to the music beforehand.
There will be a fee for participants to cover room hire and Helen’s expenses. This is being kept as low as possible. The fee per rehearsal will be £30 and the whole period of rehearsing will be divided into blocks of payment. There will be a number of bursary places available at a reduced fee rate. Singers will be able to apply for these places once accepted in to the choir. Helen will assess each application personally and make the decision herself. Criteria will be genuine financial hardship, not necessarily aligned with benefit claims.
The One World show will be performed in London in Spring/Summer 2019. So far the confirmed performance dates are:
Sat 13th April – singing selections of the show in London – details tbc
Sat 27th April, matinee, Rich Mix, Shoreditch
Sat 11th May, venue and time tbc
In addition to music by the One World Choir there will be spoken word and percussion. The spoken word will be a mixture of poetry, readings, theatrical dialogue and rap with new contributions from local spoken word artists. The acclaimed beat poet Chris Paradox has already joined the project – if you are interested in being part of One World contact Helen
