Take one musical director, and a group of homeless and disadvantaged people… get them together once a week, and let them sing. The result is Choir of Hard Knocks – an inspirational series.
This uplifting series follows the journey of Jonathon Welch’s Choir of Hard Knocks. Jonathon, a former Opera Australia tenor, brings together those who have no voice in society, and gets them to sing. In just six months they’ll stage the performance of a lifetime at the Melbourne Town Hall.
Jonathon hopes the choir will give a sense of purpose and opportunity to disordered lives, providing these new choristers with the opportunity to give back to society. But most of all he hopes they will have fun!
