Choir of Hard Knocks

The Choir of Hard Knocks, made up entirely of homeless or disadvantaged people, played the Town Hall last night.

But on Friday night they were singing in the Campbell Arcade (Degraves Street Subway), evidently opening an exhibit down there of portraits of the choir members. You could barely see or hear them amongst the big crowd that turned up to see them (or, like us, happened to come past to catch a train and stayed for a bit).

You might have missed the singing, but like many exhibitions in the arcade, the pictures are well worth taking a look at.

  1. Apparently, the two concerts at the Town Hall were sold out. Quite an achievement, although the singing group has had a prime-time TV show about them for the past 6 weeks.
    I wonder what will happen to the individual mumbers of the group once the concerts finish?

  2. I had to walk through that crowd in Campbell Arcade on Friday, talk about a bad time and place to organize such a function…

  3. Hi, I’m in a new group of singers and we will keep singing and may join the main choir, or peform seperatly, make CDs, busk or all of the above.
    I’m weiting a play about the choir and it will be pefomed in October.
