Australia's premier gospel a cappella choir
Room at the Inn - Voices for the Common Good
Sat, 22 Oct 2016
St Stephen's Church
Room at the Inn – Voices for the Common Good is a soul-stirring choral event featuring the Cafe and two other amazing choirs; the Honeybees and the Brunswick Women's Choir (touring from Melbourne) singing songs of suffering, protest, freedom and salvation - to raise money for the Sydney Alliance in the cause of supporting Refugee settlement in NSW.
The concert will be at the beautiful St Stephen's Uniting Church, Macquarie St, Sydney, on Saturday 22nd October. We are proud to support such a good cause and are thankful for the support the Sydney Alliance.
The Honeybees are a community choir who are united in their love of the uplifting and passionate quality of the gospel genre. Their repertoire includes traditional gospel songs as well as modern gospel-inspired numbers which draw on related musical styles such as soul, R & B and jazz.
The Brunswick Women’s Choir is one of Australia’s longest-standing female choirs with a reputation for delivering great, gutsy music to bring about change. Their songs tell stories that inspire audiences and bring people together. With their feet firmly planted on the ground, their music takes you to another place – a place of joy, passion and spirit.
Each choir will perform on its own and the evening will culminate in a grand massed choir finale.
All money raised will go to the Sydney Alliance for their work with refugees.
Concert sponsored by St Stephens Macquarie Street
