How does it work?

  • Get the teaching material by following the directions below for a pack with CD or to download the tracks
  • Listen, sing along and learn your part. On the day we will be singing without words or music
  • Ask friends and family to sponsor you or join in with your choir’s fundraising for your personal £30 donation
  • Attend an extra rehearsal if you can, in Belgrave or Leicester city centre
  • On the day, attend the vital morning rehearsal at The Church of the Martyrs, Westcotes Drive, for final preparation before the 'Leicester Sing for Water' festival performance in the afternoon
  • Dress code: dark trousers or skirt with a plain brightly coloured top in a rainbow colour
