Soundabout Inclusive Choirs help teach the world to sing – Zero Discrimination Day

In 2021, the Soundabout Inclusive Choirs worked collaboratively to celebrate Zero Discrimination Day on March 1st. 

The Soundabout Inclusive Choirs are musical communities without barriers for people all ages and all abilities, with a focus on giving a voice to people with severe and profound learning disabilities. During 2020/21 the choirs continued to meet and sing together on Zoom, and ten new choirs have been established. There are now groups in Birmingham, Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Peterborough, Oxford, Sandwell, Solihull, the West Midlands, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.

There is no cost to being part of the choir, as this could prevent a barrier to inclusion, and we want to ensure that everyone is able to participate in this project.

Your support enables our choir members to be part of an important new projects such as Zero Discrimination Day, working in partnership with The King’s Singers, the Sing for Freedom Choir and the Mixed Up Chorus.

The project helped to empower people who regularly experience discrimination, including those with disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers, to provide a vision of what a more inclusive world could be through performance of “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing”, with a message of ending discrimination.

Each donation of £10 enables one choir member to participate in this type of Zero Discrimination Day project.

Thank you for your support.
