WorldSong choir use music to boost Coventry’s wellbeing

Community choir, WorldSong, are looking to boost Coventry’s wellbeing with their free workshop on Saturday 6 May.

Musical director Una May Olomolaiye will be leading participants through global songs that are easy to learn, with no music background required.

A tea and cake break will be included with a short, free performance at 4pm to follow for family and friends of all participants.

WorldSong has 40 current members that meet weekly to sing together after being founded in 1997.

The choir believe that singing songs in their original languages helps to increase global understanding, peace and harmony.

“It would enhance the already great reputation of Coventry as City of Peace and Reconciliation,” chair of WorldSong committee, Mig Kerr said.

“It would acknowledge that Coventry welcomes people from all nations and languages, just as WorldSong does.”

“It would help to focus on the wonderful range of community groups and arts groups that exist to serve the people of Coventry.”

“It would continue the process of building Coventry’s confidence in its own voice and identity in the 21st century,” she added.

The choir is open to everyone without an audition, and operates on a ‘learn by ear’ natural voice method.

The free workshop will take place on the Sing Your Heart Out! event at Warwick Road United Reformed Church on Saturday 6 May. The event receives funding from Coventry arts association The Umbrella Club, which allows it to be free.

All participants are asked to book in advance via WorldSong’s website, Facebook page, or by emailing
