Fire Choir, run by The Nest Collective, was founded by folk musician Sam Lee and choir leaders Blythe Pepino, Alex Etchart, and Ben See out of a year-long fellowship at the Foundling Museum. The choir is a vehicle to take rabble-rousing, soul-lifting chants to the streets, recording studio and beyond. Our Spring Term will be expertly led by Blythe Pepino and Alex Etchart, along with trainee associate leaders.
Singers will be tapping into the enormous and ancient international repertoire of songs rooted in social change, highlighting social & environmental injustice around the world.
Material includes folk songs, modern songs, anti-war songs, songs of resistance and struggle, the natural world, songs of love and lost worlds. A portion of the Fire Choir repertoire has been especially commissioned by The Nest Collective, creating new songs sung from the perspective of contemporary communities struggling for a louder voice in society. Writers include some of the UK’s best songwriters and composers Dizraeli, Martha Tilston, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and others.
Channel your love for, or discontent with, this world through powerful communal singing that feeds the fire in your belly!
