The London Humanist Choir were lucky enough to help the British Humanist Association celebrate Darwin Day this year at not one event but at two!
Darwin Day is held each year on Charles Darwin's birthday, and is commemorated with the Darwin Day Lecture, now in its 15th year. This year's lecture took place on February the 10th and featured Professor Lawrence Krauss, with a lecture titled ‘Cosmic natural selection’. The speaker was introduced by BHA patron Professor Richard Dawkins. The London Humanist Choir opened up the evening with a rendition of "Do you Realise", by the Flaming Lips - check out a previous recording here.
The next night the choir took part in "Stand up for Darwin", brilliantly organised by the Central London Humanists. The choir helped mix up an evening which featured Professor Krauss ruminating on how Star Trek's teleports would work, Kate Smurthwaite mixing the audience up into members of the ape family and sets from Jay Foreman, Iszi Lawrence and Scott Capurro.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along. Want to check out the choir perform? Make sure to keep an eye on our calendar!
