In 2013 we launched a specially commissioned song for HMD - A Bridge of Voice and held workshops to help organisers plan a performance. The initiative, empowered people to use the power of music and their voice to Build a Bridge between thier community and the rest of the UK on Holocaust Memorial Day.  The song was then performed by the ACM Gospel Choir at the Public and Commemorative Events for HMD 2013.

You can still be part of this project by singing this specially commissioned song on or around 27 January. In singing together, in locations around the UK, we can remember the events of history in a powerfully inclusive way.  For Holocaust Memorial Day, why not use your voice with others in your community and affirm your dedication to ending  discrimination in all forms and to building a safer, better future together.

Using our resources you can download, practice and interpret our song A Bridge of Voice and be a part of groups across the UK singing together, showing solidarity and support for bridging communities.
