Choirs - do you want to raise money for WaterAid efforts in Malawi? And join 40 of the UK's best choirs to perform an abundance of water themed melodies in The Scoop by City Hall in front of a huge crowd? Make sure you sign up for Sing for Water, a breathtaking concert now in its seventeenth year led by Katie Rose and Roxane Smith, part of Totally Thames 2019...

Why Sing for Water?

Sing for Water was founded by renowned singer, composer and musical director Helen Chadwick and the Thames Festival Trust. Last year we raised £22,000 for WaterAid efforts in Rwanda, and since the project began have raised over £1 million for them, so sign your choir up so that we can continue to help this wonderful charity, this year focusing efforts in Malawi.

Register for the chance to mingle with hundreds of other choir singers from across the country, lead by talented conductors and vocal ensembles. You will also get life long access to a repertoire of 7 songs complete with all the learning resources supplied digitally.

Why WaterAid?

Right now, millions of people across the world are living without access to clean water and sanitation. This crisis is costing lives and ruining chances of development. WaterAid's vision is a world where everyone has access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene - basic human rights that most take for granted.

It only costs £15 to give one person access to clean water for the rest of their lives. Each singer taking part raises a minimum of £50, meaning Sing for Water saves thousands of lives.
