The Mersey Wave Choir took part in the Merseyside Mondrian project organised by the BBC, Tate Liverpool, Culture Liverpool and Open Culture who joined forces to help create a spectacular artwork on the Pier Head in Liverpool on Saturday 6th September 2014.

Inspired by the work of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian – whose most recognised works are abstract paintings of coloured squares, rectangles, and thick black lines – the installation will be a reflection of the people and passions of Merseyside with communities and groups coming together to help create a living and breathing abstract masterpiece.

The one-thousand participants came together from across Merseyside to form the living and breathing Merseyside Mondrian which was photographed and filmed by the BBC One Show. Each of the squares in the work were be made up of different community groups and the Mersey Wave Choir performed “Love Changes Everything” wearing their designated colour of white to create a block of colour inspired by a Mondrian master piece.

The final art installation will then be featured on The One Show BBC 1 at 7pm on Monday 8th September and Tuesday 9th September 2014.
