A community choir will perform at the Southbank Centre as part of a summer-long series celebrating neighbourhood.
The Hampstead-based Fleet Singers Community Choir is one of more than 100 taking part in the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Neighbourhood.
Pam Gilby, founder of the choir, which has 45 members based in and around South End Green, said: “The choir is looking forward to the event enormously. We’ve performed at the Southbank Centre before but it’s still exciting and we’re all anticipating a really good afternoon.”
Festival choristers and members of the public will attempt to break the world record for the largest number of singers performing, which stands at 1,138.
Members of the Fleet Singers will take part in the world record bid singing a rendition of Jerusalem, before the choir’s official performance on Monday, May 6 at 3.20pm, when they will sing a new specially composed song entitled Ode To Living Things.
