Welcome to Spirit of the Streets Choir
The Spirit of the Streets Choir is a not-for-profit community organisation aimed at providing an environment where people from all walks of life and all social backgrounds can come together in song and friendship. It is a Choir where people who experience social disadvantage, isolation and often stigma because of their circumstances would otherwise not be able to enjoy the benefits of singing.
SOS welcomes everyone as active members of a performing choir in a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment, whether they are able to sing or think that they can’t sing. Our membership is drawn from all over Perth and there are no barriers to participation.
The Choir provides an atmosphere that takes the message of unity and social acceptance through singing to the broader community. The Choir performs gigs at Not-for-Profit organisations, corporate offices, social events for corporates, community organisations, local councils, government organisations, aged care organisations, and a variety of other venues. If you would like to book the Choir, contact Eleanor, our Booking Secretary, to discuss your event planning.
SOS is an incorporated, volunteer run, not-for-profit organisation based in Perth, Western Australia. We are GST registered, registered with the ACNC and have Charitable Collections Licence.
Quote from a gig host:
We loved having The Spirit of the Streets Choir perform as part of Expresstival. It gave the public an opportunity to connect with the humanity of the characters involved with hardship plus showcase their talent, which no doubt the choir thrives from. An honour and a pleasure we are always welcome to have back in future. Expresstival
Stories from the SOS Choir
Spirit of the Streets – Our Stories is a “must read” for 2017 for those who know the Spirit of the Streets Choir and for those who would like to get to know us better. The book evolved from a belief that the members of the Choir, would have much to offer readers by putting in writing their stories and poems of recovery and hope. It was hoped that the book would capture, most importantly, how our members are a testament to the benefits of singing and belonging to a community where it is possible to part of a “family”.

Spirit of the Streets Choir acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Western Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present. (Reconciliation WA)
