The Screen Guide

Top tenor and singing teacher Jonathon Welch has a passion for the human voice. He wants to take that passion and form a new and unlikely choir, a choir made up of Melbourne's homeless and disadvantaged community. The television series, CHOIR OF HARD KNOCKS, is the story of Jonathon and the choir's journey, from recruitment, to first rehearsal , through to a gala lunch performance in front of almost two-thousand people six months later at Melbourne Town Hall.
