The European Queer Choir brings singers from the UK, Germany and Sweden bonded by a dream to share the richness of our European songs and voices, at the largest LGBTQI choral festival in the world GALA Choruses Festival in Denver July, 2016. We have aleady got the £45k and we need you to give us that final push to our goal of £50k
You can invest in us, an exciting group and this is just the start of opportunites for sharing that increases understanding across our world with song. We are not short of talent or ambition but money. This is how you can help up us clamber over that final hurdle.
Our wonderful Artistic Director Aneesa Chaudhry and the magic fingers of our accompanist Monja Monte have not been paid for any rehearsals, preparartion time or for the 4 performances we will give in Denver and we dont think that's fair. We have some rehearsal costs to cover and whats let over will pay these two wonderful women who have given their talent to support this great project
Its late and we only have a few weeks to raise the last few thousand that will take us to share and bring home a wealth of music and song. We are taking our Songs for Europe, celebrating the variety and breath of Europe's rich crucible of culture and music . You can share in our journey.
The singers have raided their piggy banks, Gala Choruses and Fruitvox have helped the Southbank Centre gave us rehearsal space and now its your turn.
