Koruso!, began in October 2008 as a Southwark CouncilÂ initiative to promote community cohesion. It has since grown from a small choral group to a self-run community choir with a wide-ranging repertoire, performing music that bridges cultures and unites faith traditions.
To date, Koruso! has performed at a variety of venues across its home borough and beyond, andÂ has risen to the challenge of a live performance on BBC Radio.
The project won anÂ ABC awardÂ in DecemberÂ 2009 at the Royal Society for the Arts and was cited by the judging panelÂ asÂ â€an excellent, innovative way of bringing people together through a shared passion for musicâ€. The ABCs are the Awards For Bridging Cultures, administered by iCoCo (The Institute of Community Cohesion).
To try and attract new members Koruso are holding an open evening on Thursday 15th September at The Learning Centre, Cator Street, Peckham SE15 6AA.
So if you’ve ever thought of joining a choir, come and try it out. You just need to be 18 years old or over to join.
