Sing for Water

Sing for Water was initiated by composer Helen Chadwick as a project to raise money for WaterAid at The Thames Festival in 2002.   Mass choral events now take place across the country and have raised over £1 million for WaterAid's life-saving projects providing clean water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities. 

Katie Rose has been conducting events for Sing for Water since 2011.   She has co-directed Sing for Water London with Michael Harper & Roxane Smith at Totally Thames since 2017:
"Sing for Water demonstrates the amazing power of song to make waves in the world"

Sing for Water London 2019

15th September, 2.15, The Scoop, Queens Walk, SE1 2AA
Join us for a spectacular choral fundraiser in a stunning riverside venue.

There is a song which says 'many drops to turn a mill, singly none' and it is wonderful that so many choirs, festivals and individuals are now involved with Sing for Water. We are hoping that Sing for Water will continue to grow so that many more people can have access to safe water and sanitation. ”

— Helen Chadwick
