The Commonwealth Resounds! is proud to be working in partnership with Joe Walters and his charity, Songbound, a music outreach initiative that uses singing to reach out to India’s most impoverished children via collaborative projects with schools, choirs and professional musicians worldwide.

Young musicians from The Purcell School have made ‘Songbound’ their special focus for charitable fundraising in 2012/13. They are hoping to work with Joe Walters and choral trainers in Sri Lanka to spread the benefits of this excellent programme into new communities.

During CHOGM 2013, there will be a very special, important role for Songbound, and brilliant young singers and instrumentalists from The Commonwealth Resounds! will be travelling to Sri Lanka to try and help bring this about.
