Who We Are
In the words of the Spirit of the Streets song…
We're a rough and ready crew, but we've got things to do. We've got the feel of family here; we make the bad stuff disappear.
We sing to triumph over adversity in our everyday lives.

In their everyday lives, the members of the Spirit of the Streets Choir experience social disadvantage, isolation and often stigma by way of their circumstances which may include either a mental, neurological, physical disability or homelessness.
Each member has their own personal story to tell, and at performances will often describe their journey and the way in which the fellowship of the Choir has helped them find a new confidence in their life.
The Choir provides a non-discriminatory, non-judgmental, safe and nurturing environment where each individual feels acknowledged and valued. At the same time they are encouraged and inspired to see past the difficulties and disadvantages of their daily lives to achieve the very best they can as a member of the Choir family. There is no discrimination by way of race, sex, culture or creed or the ability to read music.
