Leicestershire Choir

The Leicestershire Soundabout Inclusive Choir welcomes people of all ages and their families. 

The Choir celebrates that everyone has their own way of sharing their voice. Here are a few examples of ways you could join in:

  • Using Makaton Signing
  • Singing or other vocal noises
  • Making sounds with an instrument or sound maker
  • Using technology eg. an iPad or EyeGaze
  • Movement and dance

By welcoming all voices we aim to be as inclusive as possible, and actively try to remove barriers to participation from those with severe and profound learning disabilities. 

The choir sings songs chosen by members and occasionally writes their own songs. Every piece of music is designed so that members can be involved in their own way. 

The choir is free to join, there are no auditions, and you do not need to be able to read music notation. 

The choir meets on zoom on alternate Saturdays at 12.00pm. Below are the dates of the upcoming rehearsals, or you can download them as a PDF here: Leicestershire Inclusive Choir Dates

We are really excited to be working in partnership with Soundabout to offer a new singing opportunity for young people and their families across Leicester and Leicestershire. The inclusive aspect of this group will enable people from all backgrounds and abilities to discover the joy of being part of a singing community whilst learning new skills and also having a lot of fun in a safe and caring environment.
