A PEACE choir in Birmingham is inviting new singers to join them as they prepare to celebrate the 80th anniversary of their foundation.
There are no auditions or requirements for previous experience, but a willingness to attend practices, Birmingham Clarion Singers (BCS) has said.
BCS is a campaigning choir, singing for “Peace and Justice” locally and nationally.
In its early days in World War II, the choir performed in air raid shelters, on bombed sites, for night-time factory workers in canteens and for forces and civilians in Birmingham’s Big Top site on New Street.
Throughout BCS’s history, the choir has sung in support of nuclear disarmament, against the rise of racism, for environmental sustainability and for all the many struggles associated with the labour movement.
BCS rehearse on Wednesday evenings in school term times between 7.30 and 9.30 at All Saints Centre, Vicarage Road, Kings Heath.
The choir is welcoming all those interested to join them as the “work of all campaigning choir groups is more important than ever” with a general election looming.
