New Inclusive Choir launches for Wiltshire Youth

On Sunday 2 August 2020, the national charity Soundabout and Wiltshire Music Connect will launch a brand new inclusive choir for children and young people across the county.

The Soundabout Inclusive Choir for Wiltshire Youth will welcome young people of all abilities up to the age of 18 and is focused 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 using online video-conferencing 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 choir in Oxfordshire and online, which was recently the subject of a report by the BBC’s Fergal Keane on the News at Ten.

Clare Cook, CEO, Soundabout:

If you have children aged 18 and under living in Wiltshire who are interested in joining the choir please email choir@soundabout.org.uk for a registration form.
