Opportunity for choirs to get involved with climate action from Music Declares Emergency

21 September 2021


This autumn Music Declares Emergency will be inviting choirs across the UK to sing a message to the world, during COP26 – the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

The initiative aims to place action on climate at the heart of public thinking by mobilising choir networks across the UK to create the largest musical event ever seen in the UK. At the end of October choirs across the nation will perform the iconic Louis Armstrong song ‘What A Wonderful World’ arranged by acclaimed choir leader Mark De-Lisser.

Sing The Change is inviting choirs all over the country to share their versions of the song on October 30th.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Film your choir singing What A Wonderful World and share on all of your social media channels, using the hashtags #SingTheChange #WonderfulWorld #nomusiconadeadplanet.
  • Share your video with Music Declares Emergency
  • Create a public performance on the 30th October. You could join with other local choirs for this. The bigger and the more public, the better! Think flash-mob… Think local beauty spot…Think about what a ‘wonderful world’ means to you!
