Place: Croydon College (College Rd, London CR9 1DX, UK)
Time: Doors open at 5.30pm
The music students at Croydon College present the Global Snowball Christmas gig to bring the Croydon Community closer together. We are raising money and awareness for those in need around the world that have had their human rights violated through war violence and other means. The money raised will go towards such projects as training youth workers to work with disadvantaged children in war torn areas.
We are aspiring musicians who want to make a change. We have been studying human rights and using this as inspiration for our compositions and performances for the gig. The songs we have been composing cover human rights issues such as the right to equality, freedom from discrimination and the right to education. The people we are raising money for are our inspiration and we want to give something back.
The gig will be held on December the 8th at Croydon College, doors open at 5.30pm. You can either donate online via this website or on the door.
In 2017, we reached over 10,000 young people through music in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. We have seen music make a difference in their lives, building hope, confidence and connection among people affected by war and armed conflict.
There is still more work to be done.
Every person can make a difference through music. On June 21st we have invited musicians around the world to organize benefit concerts for World Wide Music Day, an annual celebration of the right to music.
Please join your voice with musicians around the world to help us bring music to where it is needed most.
