Deep mysterious sounds of male a cappella, blended with spirited joyful voices have been drifting across corridors of Perth as Spirits and Spooks have gathered to conjure up a concert, which will be unveiled at the Perth Town Hall on Sunday 25th October.

It's an unlikely coupling, but Perth's ever popular Spirit of the Streets Choir (SOS) will join the hilarious Spooky Men of the West, in an uplifting afternoon of serious and silly song that will move you to laughter and tears of joy.

The Spooks will sing up a spectral smorgasbord of traditional Georgian song, weirdly wacky takes on popular songs, as well as bearded balladry and deadpan deliveries of delicious original work. This contrasts with the Spirits bright, energetic heart-felt songs and stories reflecting lives, which are being transformed through music and friendship. The final collaboration of the two wildly different choirs promises to be a fun, pre-Halloween holler.

SOS is a choir that provides an opportunity for people, who are disadvantaged and socially isolated to re-connect with the general community, make friends, improve physical and mental well-being, while building self confidence and esteem through singing and performing together. The message carried in their song invokes a spirit of unity, acceptance and inclusion.

“I've experienced many choirs over the years and it always amazes me how the SOS can reach out to an audience with sheer honesty and love to make every person in the room feel special. In the words of their own song “ We have the feel of a family here, we make the bad stuff disappear”, and when they sing, the bad things do disappear and a sense of joy pervades”, says Musical Director, Bernard Carney.

This year's concert will feature some of the solo SOS talent and will be hosted by blues legend Rick Steele who will also perform with the choir.

SOS started in 2007 by local musician and songwriter, Bernard Carney, on the wings of the successful Choir of Hard Knocks. Membership then was mainly Big Issue Magazine vendors but today, with over 70 members, the self-proclaimed rough and ready crew is totally inclusive and represents groups of people who are at risk of becoming socially isolated.
