Chorus will be singing for the climate!

We've joined the fantastic 'Sing The Change' initiative by 'Music Declares Emergency' and will be singing 'What a Wonderful World' to send a message to the world during COP26 - the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

We've joined the fantastic 'Sing The Change' initiative by 'Music Declares Emergency' and will be singing 'What a Wonderful World' to send a message to the world during COP26 - the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

This year has somehow become the year of the climate - the world is finally waking up to the threat of the climate crisis and the next decade ahead is critical if we want to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. We are all in this together, and now the music industry is joining the battle. 'Music Declares Emergency' is an international group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations. They state that:

 

"The continued rise in greenhouse gas emissions and the ongoing devastation of the natural world constitute a clear and present threat to life on Earth."

That an immediate governmental response is necessary to protect all life from climate and ecological catastrophe.

Music, musicians and music businesses, through their unique cultural and economic power, can lead the way in demanding the systemic changes required to secure all life on Earth.

We call on all those within the industry to join us in declaring a climate emergency and to work towards making the cultural and operational changes necessary to contribute towards a carbon neutral future".

 

We are really excited to be joining this international effort, which aims to create the largest musical event ever seen in the UK!

Follow us on our SU website, Facebook and Twitter to see what we get up to! And, why not join Chorus?? You still have time to take part - we will start rehearsing this piece tonight!!!
