Join the Global MS Choir

The Global MS Choir is back. Lift your voice for World MS Day. It’s time to sing for MS!

In the spirit of MS Connections, we are joining our voices in song for the MS community. Last year the Global MS Choir did an incredible performance of ‘Beautiful Day’. Now it’s back with another star performance to be released on 30 May 2022. Choir members will sing ‘All You Need is Love’, a classic by The Beatles. To celebrate our global diversity, we’ll be singing some of the lines in different languages.

Want to take part? Join in harmony as we celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future.

The 2021 Global MS Choir singing ‘Beautiful Day’

How will it work?

To save your place in the global MS choir, register using the form below. We will have our first rehearsal for everyone taking part in the choir on Wednesday 13 April.

After our first rehearsal, we will ask you to send us an audio recording of you singing the song by the end of the day on Thursday 28 April. This is so that we can synchronise the sound of your voices. We will then have a final rehearsal on Thursday 19 May where we sing along to the soundtrack and record a video performance together to release on World MS Day.

Our team will edit your video performances together to broadcast on World MS Day – 30 May via Facebook and YouTube.

Please note all choir rehearsals will take place in English.
