Refugee Week Big Sing

Experience the power of song to bring communities together as part of Refugee Week at Southbank Centre.

The line-up includes:
Mixed Up Chorus
Big Sing Women for Refugee Women
London Syrian Ensemble

The London Syrian Ensemble is a collective of some of Syria's finest musicians based in the UK. They are a group of both newly arrived and long-term residents who either studied or taught in the eminent Damascus Conservatoire. They bring the sounds of Syria through a diverse repertoire of classical and traditional music from the region.

Learn songs inspired by a Hayward Gallery project by artist Charwei Tsai, created in collaboration with participants from Women for Refugee Women and women at Yarl's Wood Detention Centre.

Hear performances from Mixed Up Chorus, before letting your own voice be heard.

Refugee Week at Southbank Centre is celebrated in partnership with Counterpoints Arts
