Sparkle with Soundabout World Premiere

Sparkle with Soundabout is an original composition written by Rebecca Devereux and some of Soundabout’s Graduate Emerging Leaders. It was recorded by Soundabout Choirs and musicians from across the country.

On Thursday 7th November 2023, everyone who took part in the recording was invited to the exclusive online premiere. The evening was a resounding success: breath-taking, emotional, and very sparkly!

Composer Rebecca Devereux, also Soundabout’s Family Support Coordinator, explained how she wanted to create a song that was accessible to everyone in the Soundabout community and beyond. ‘I wanted to create a piece of music that could be accessed in a multitude of ways; you don’t have to play instruments or vocalise’. 

Rebecca also expressed that it was ‘absolutely fantastic’ to have had the Graduate Emerging Leaders co-write the song. ‘They were so creative, I just kind of sat back and watched the song develop’.

Sparkle with Soundabout was written as part of Soundabout’s winter campaign. We want to raise awareness of the power of music and the sparkle it brings to the lives of Learning Disabled people. Get involved: Find out how you can Sparkle with Soundabout.

Together we can shine bright and give the gift of music.
