Citizens Of The World Choir
In 2017, after a meeting in Parliament with Lord Roger Roberts Of Llandudno, Becky and a group of volunteers started the Citizens Of The World Choir.
COTW Choir is a choir made up of refugees, asylum seekers and local friends (currently representing 25 different nationalities) and rehearses at the lovely Mycenae House in Greenwich, where we host our own BDMA concerts!
We are even lucky enough to have a few BDMA parents sing with us and some of the BDMA team making the choir happen.
COTW also has a pretty astounding list of patrons from Lord Rog himself, our founding father, to award winning actresses Emily Watson OBE and Ann Mitchell, jazz superstar Ian Shaw and humanitarian activist and director of the Ashley Foundation, Jane Ashley!
Our very own Becky is the choir’s Musical Director and under her leadership, and with the brilliant team that works alongside her, COTW has been making quite a splash!
COTW have featured in events hosted by TEDX, Parliament, The Evening Standard, The Globe Theatre, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Southbank Centre, UNHCR, BBC Radio London, BBC Radio 4, Love Supreme Festival, Byline Festival, Ronnie Scotts, BBC Radio Cymru, London Jazz Festival and the list goes on!
COTW couldn’t exist with BDMA and we are so proud to have been able to build a community for people who really need it on the strong foundations of the BDMA community – so thank you to you all for making it possible!
COTW is a charitable community project and if you are interested to find out more, or would like to find a way to support the choir then don’t hesitate to get in touch with Becky!
