If All the World Could Sing

Posted by jonathanfryer on Wednesday, 12th September, 2018

divrse choirUnder the dynamic leadership of Merlene Emerson from Singapore, the World Traders livery company in London has its heart set on entering the Guinness Book of Records by bringing together the most diverse (by nationality) group of singers ever for an event on 8 October. The current record is 72, but the organisers are hoping for 101, at least, to render I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing: Imagine. The venue is the Goodenough College near Russell Square http://www.goodenough.ac.uk/ and there will be a (free) reception afterwards. Singers should bring their passports, to verify their nationality. At the moment the line-up is particularly short of participants from Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa, but as every nation on earth has residents in London, they shouldn’t be so difficult to muster, surely?

Volunteers need to register via: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/world-traders-and-goodenough-college-guinness-world-record-challenge-tickets-44981245115

Stand up, sing up and be happy!
