We are organising Birmingham's first-ever Christmas Concert for the Over-50's and you can volunteer by being part of the Strike-A-Chord Over-50's Community Choir! You only live once - you might as well use every opportunity to enjoy, experience and engage, whilst meeting a need in the community.

During the Yuletide, many are the programmes and events that focus on children (and rightfully so). Elderly Care Homes may organise Christmas parties for their residents but seldom do you ever hear of a concert solely for the ageing community.

Our intention is for the Strike-A-Chord Over-50's Christmas Concert to be an uplifting Christmas celebration for the Over-50's by the Over-50's. As much as possible, the singers, players and musicians at the concert will be in the 50+ age group.

Strike-A-Chord is a Birmingham-based not-for-profit project in which the Over-50's and Over-60's learn how to play the keyboard. This fun-filled activity fosters togetherness and social interaction, as well as helps the ageing population overcome isolation and loneliness.

In preparation for the concert, we are forming a community choir of people from all over Brum aged 50+ and there's a spot just for you! No singing experience is required and rehearsals are about to start.
