Choir leader Andy Booth and mechanical engineer Matt Carré talk about their work on the Creating Hope choir concert and explore the concept of hope with colleagues from the Faculty of Engineering.

The Project

Uplifting songs on the theme of hope, arranged, conducted and performed by the Chorus UK choir. The song choices are inspired by research being undertaken by staff and students in the Faculty of Engineering that aims to make the world a better place.

The programme includes rock classics We Built This City by Starship and ELO’s Mr Blue Sky alongside greats such as Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World. The choir is bolstered for the occasion by members of the Faculty.

Conceived by engineer and long-time choir member Professor Matt Carré, this unique concert has a simple message: though the world is facing immense challenges, human beings have the spirit and the ingenuity to overcome them.

The live event will be available to watch online.
