Between January and July 2007 the Choir of Hard Knocks was televised on the ABC. Over the following months (July – September 07) Merelyn Briton through her work as a volunteer at City Mission, reflected that she saw people at City Mission in the same light as those performing in the Choir of Hard Knocks. From those thoughts evolved a group of like-minded people coming together on the 5th September 2007 to eventually form a Choir Steering Committee.
From that initial community meeting interest grew and over the next few short months a choir formed and became known as Launceston’s Choir of High Hopes.
The aim of the Choir is to provide an avenue for community members, as a result of homelessness, disability, mental health issues, social isolation, etc to develop confidence, self-worth, self-esteem and encourage peer support, consequently enhancing their social integration and inclusion within their local community.
City Mission aims to provide those with an interest in music and singing an outlet to explore, develop and awaken their gifts through music and song by participation in the "Choir of High Hopes".
The choir meets and practises each Wednesday in the City Mission’s Chapel, Frederick St Launceston, between 10-12 pm.
Rehearsals recommence at the Chapel, 46 Frederick Street, Launceston at 10.30am on Wednesday 6th February. Those interested in becoming a member are welcome to attend.
