About this event

Come and sing songs from jazz to gospel, from old crooners to contemporary pop, from cultures across the world. We welcome everyone – all you need are vocal cords! 

Raise the Roof is led by Kirsty Martin. Each term participants have the opportunity to perform in a concert here at the Horniman.

Kirsty Martin is a Choral Activist and MD for Hullabaloo Community Quire in Brighton. She is a prolific composer and arranger for community choirs, and travels extensively to share her infectious and joyful funkysoulybluesyfolky vocal vision with singers nationwide!
