LYGC was set up to enable people who enjoy singing to meet others in a social group whilst developing their music and vocal skills. London is a fantastic mixing pot of people and LYGC celebrates this diversity in a welcoming fun environment. The choir is open to all, requires no auditions and sings uplifting material including Gospel, pop/funk/soul and African traditional.
This has led to various performances including at the House of Commons with David Cameron present, opening the JazzFM Awards Ceremony, supporting Tenors Unlimited, rock bands like Deaf Havana, on stages such as the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, Royal Festival Hall, Fairfield Halls and in Kensington Gardens, on BBC and ITV and for events like the International Youth Arts Festival and New Voices Festival.
LYGC has raised funds for, amongst others, Marie Curie Cancer Care, AgeUK, MacMillan Cancer Care and is now available on iTunes on HealthPovertyAction’s ‘Tunes4Change’ album which raises funds for their maternity projects in Sierra Leone (produced by FaithsAct Fellows from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation).
