On Wednesday 21st September, Esher College took part in the World Choir event for Peace One Day. Fourteen students and two members of staff took part and sang Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, I’ll be there for you (theme song from Friends) and Somewhere from West Side Story. All these songs have a peace and support/loyalty theme. Claire Whittaker, Head of Music, said " It was great to have the opportunity to come together as a college community and sing to support Peace. We hope to be involved again next year!"
One Day One Choir is a global choral initiative, starting in 2014, which has been created to mobilise the inspiring and harmonious power of singing together to unite people globally to sing for peace on and around Peace Day, September the 21st. Anyone, anywhere can join in either by dedicating something you are already singing on Peace Day or by creating a performance, however short or long, with an appropriate focus on peace – peace at home, at school, in our communities and work places, and around the world.
