On Sunday 19 June, intercultural choir the Mixed Up Chorus were joined by people of all faiths and non-religious backgrounds to take their message of interfaith unity to the streets of London.
The ‘Sing Walk Talk’ musical tour visited different places of worship on its way through northwest London, stopping at St Mary’s Church Primrose Hill, the Liberal Jewish Synagogue and London Central Mosque.
As well as performing songs from around the globe, the walk featured an interfaith singing workshop led by musical director Jeremy Haneman and reflections and contributions from special guests.
Eli Tamir, who coordinates the choir, said: “The Mixed Up Chorus believes that if we sing next to each other we’ll live well next to each other. It was fantastic to see so many people of different beliefs and backgrounds joining us to sing, walk and talk with the choir. From our performance in a church in the morning, to a singing workshop in a synagogue and a guided tour of a mosque in the afternoon, the day really showed the power of music to bring people together.”
The Mixed Up Chorus was founded in 2013 by 3FF, the Three Faiths Forum, and has been uniting people from different faiths and backgrounds ever since.
