Alongside our professional soloists, we're looking for a community chorus to appear in the film!

We'll have three online music and acting rehearsals on 2nd, 9th, and 16th November, as well as a series of videos for you to practise at home. You can then record your part, send it to us, and we'll edit it into the final film!

Complete our sign-up form, or email Louise Garner ([email protected]) if you've any questions.
