Soundabout Inclusive Choir

welcomes people aged 25 years and under, 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 meets monthly on Saturdays 11:00-12:30.  For more info on how to join please contact us at music.arts@sips.co.uk or 0121 296 2997
