About the Sheffield One World Choir
Open to all refugees and asylum seekers
Sheffield One World Choir aims for positive social change through the development of a welcoming and vibrant community choir, primarily for asylum seekers and refugees in Sheffield. We meet weekly to rehearse and socialise and perform regularly at community events.
What We Do
This life-enhancing, sociable and diverse choir within Sheffield brings together asylum seekers and refugees with other people living in Sheffield. We hope to break down barriers between people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds through singing ; we also promote cultural awareness and mutual respect through sharing songs from group members’ countries or cultures.
