Summary "Take one musical director, and a group of homeless and disadvantaged people. Get them together once a week, and let them sing. The result is Choir of Hard Knocks - an inspirational five-part series that premieres on Tuesday May 15, 8pm on ABC TV. In this uplifting series ABC TV follows the journey of Jonathon Welch's Choir of Hard Knocks. Jonathon, a former Opera Australia tenor, will bring together those who have no voice in society, and get them to sing. In just six months they'll stage the performance of a lifetime. The choir, Jonathon hopes, will give a sense of purpose and opportunity to disordered lives, providing these choristers with the opportunity to give back to society. But most of all he hopes they will have fun! There are no humiliating auditions. Jonathon will work with whatever voices he gets. He wants the choir to be open to anyone who can describe themselves as homeless or disadvantaged and is willing to give it a go."--website
