Radio personality to host 2023 Choir Corporate Challenge
ABC radio personality James Valentine will be the special host at this year’s Sydney Street Choir Corporate Challenge in Martin Place on October 4.
Seven corporate choirs and more than 170 singers will perform at the challenge which has become a highlight on the Street Choir event calendar.
Valentine, who was also a member of successful 1980s rock band the Models, will lead the event as the choirs battle it out.
Choir Director James Paul said the Corporate Challenge was a special day for the Street Choir.
“They really enjoy taking centre stage in Martin Place with the corporate choirs and it really is a great thrill for everyone involved,” he said.
“We are asking people to join us and enjoy an event which is a truly uplifting experience.
“We are grateful that James Valentine – a wonderful musician as well as radio broadcaster – is able to join us for the event.”
