INTERNATIONAL SING WHEREVER YOU GO DAY, THURSDAY 26 FEBRUARY
RED CROSS VICTORIAN BUSHFIRE APPEAL
The CANBERRA 5M2M BUSHFIRE RESPONSE CHOIR
An Overheard Productions initiative in conjunction with Red Cross (ACT), Canberra Musicians Club and many, many others
I’m doing some stuff with Red Cross (ACT) to help promote their Victorian Bushfire Appeal but also to raise awareness of the years of recovery and work that will be needed to move on from here.
To help the victims.
To help the helpers.
And to help the people who are helping the helpers.
In conjunction with International Sing Wherever You Go Day: www.singwhereveryougoday.blogspot.com
You may have seen the article in the paper in The Canberra Times on Sunday:
That was a choir I assembled at very short notice and we sang a beautiful song ‘Time is a Tempest’ I had re-written (with the author’s/authors’ blessings).
We are taking that song and others to make next Thursday something huge in terms of singing and awareness and fun and remembering what’s still going on for the Victorians.
And Red Cross.
And other relief agencies.
Bands and venues are coming on board even as we speak, including the Hippo Bar and PJ O’Reilly’s in the city – see links for more.
Check out the links and give me a yodel if you’d like a chat.
