The Choir of Hard Knocks is an eclectic group of disadvantaged and homeless people who have created an unlikely musical phenomenon. This group of around 50 men and women have come together under the leadership of former Opera Australia principal Jonathon Welch, who has transformed a disparate bunch of people into a bona fide choir. This heart-warming CD follows the choir's journey towards their Gala Launch Concert, all of which was captured on the five-part ABC TV series The Choir of Hard Knocks.
