Inclusive Choir – West Midlands

New Inclusive Choir for the West Midlands

On Saturday 12th December 2020 at 11am, the national charity Soundabout and Midlands Art Centre (MAC) will launch a brand new inclusive choir for children and young people under 25, across the West Midlands.

The MAC-Soundabout Inclusive Choir for the West Midlands will welcome young people of all abilities up to the age of 25 and is focussed on removing barriers from those with severe and profound learning disabilities being able to participate musically.

The choir will meet and sing together every two weeks via an online video-conferencing platform and aims to also rehearse regularly in person from early 2021.

Soundabout, which uses music to unlock the potential of people with severe and profound learning disabilities, also runs a number of other choirs, one of which, the Oxford Inclusive Choir, was recently the subject of a report by Fergal Keane on the the BBC’s national News at Six and Ten.

Clare Cook, CEO, Soundabout:

 “Our experience in Oxford has shown us the powerful impact that an inclusive choir has on all involved – creating a musical community around children and young people with disabilities builds confidence in their own musicality and ability to form relationships. Some of the members will be singers, others may use technology or traditional instruments to make their contribution – all are welcome. Our team is aspirational in our approach and we are always looking to create exciting opportunities for leadership and performance within the choir.”
