Choir of Hard Knocks returns to Violet Town

Ten years since the Choir of Hard Knocks rocked Violet Town and now they are making a come back - the Choir that inspired a Nation. The choir is still led by their dedicated Founding Artistic Director, Dr Jonathon Welch AM and rehearse weekly at Deakin Edge, Federation Square.

Most importantly, the ongoing and regular contact the choir provides to the members has had a profound effect on their lives, leading many of the original 52 back to either part time or full time study or work.

The choir has also given members the opportunity to find new purpose in life. Many had become socially excluded due to their socioeconomic circumstances, and the choir has enabled them to acquire new skills and rebuild personal confidence and self esteem. It has also created long lasting and ongoing friendships and relationships, and a unique opportunity for the choir members to make a positive and enduring contribution back to the community and has inspired a worldwide movement of ‘street choirs’.
