Opportunity – We Are One Singers Virtual Project (Commonwealth Community Music Initiative) 

Do you love to sing? Do you live in a Commonwealth country? Then this project is especially for you.

Sign up to Opportunity for Singers and you will get to sing a specially commissioned piece of music by film composer John Koutselinis, recorded by the Commonwealth Community Choir and The People’s Orchestra.

  • Lyrics
  • Vocal score with piano
  • Demo tracks for all singing parts
  • Orchestral backing track
  • A click–track
  • Links to rehearsal workshops
  • Recording hints and tips

Singers and musicians will record and upload their videos from locations all over the world. Each one of the videos will then be synchronised and combined into one single performance to create the finished We Are One piece.

Your pack will include instructions to help you record yourself singing, enabling you to join our massed virtual music event along with lots of other singers from across the Commonwealth.


Note: Music packs will be sent out from 8th August 2021

All recordings need to be submitted to us by midnight on 30th November 2021 (GMT).  Recordings received after this date will not be accepted.

You will be part of the World Premiere of a piece of music commissioned especially for the Commonwealth Community Massed Virtual Orchestra and Choir, a truly global phenomenon. Opportunity brings together singers from around the world and their love of music in a new way through the use of technology.

Creating a healthier Commonwealth through singing

  • Improves mental health and sense of well-being, grows personal confidence and kindles new friendships.
  • Join in and establish international relationships for music–making and celebrate the Commonwealth together.
