I have recently been working on a website for Liberty Choir. The Liberty Choirs were dreamed up by MJ Paranzino, singer, composer and choir director, and her partner, the journalist and writer, Ginny Dougary, more than ten years ago.
Their idea was to take MJ’s singers into prisons to create choirs with inmates in a continuous programme of choir singing. And when released to join out community choirs in South and West London, Brighton and Hastings.
I have been a member of South London Choir for some time so have had the opportunity to join several programmes in Wandsworth Prison.
David Gilmour has been a great supporter of the programme and we recently recorded vocals with him for his new single Rattle that Lock . The website is now up Liberty choir and the album went in at number one!
