London Sing for Water

A large handful of singers from Red Leicester (and Leicester Amika Choir) travelled down to London last weekend to take part in London Sing for Water at the Thames Festival 2008. After a couple of rehearsals, we took to the stage with around 1000 others to sing six songs, in the hopes of raising money for WaterAid projects in Ghana.

The weather was stunning, which probably helped to contribute to the large crowd that gathered around the Scoop (outside City Hall) on Sunday afternoon. The singing itself was exhilarating, and the audience seemed to enjoy themselves too. Red Leicester also took part in the Marasong, performing a short busking set near to HMS Belfast.

Some photos of the event can be seen at our flickr page.
