Choir of Hope and Inspiration Appeal

The Choir of Hope and Inspiration

The Choir of Hope and Inspiration (formerly known as the Choir of Hard Knocks) began rehearsing in September 2006 under the leadership of Founding Music Director, Dr Jonathon Welch AM. Jonathon established the Choir upon his return to Melbourne, having previously created the Sydney Street Choir in 2001. That choir still performs regularly, with Jonathon now as Patron. Created specifically for people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage, Jonathon's original inspiration for creating such Choirs came from reading an article about the Montreal Homeless Men's Choir whilst in Canada. Jonathon's talent and passion for music, as a musician and professional Opera singer, his teaching work, and his tireless efforts in creating music projects for the indigent, and for the disadvantaged, have recently been recognised with an Order of Australia, and the award of Australian of the Year - Local Hero, in 2008.
