West Midlands Inclusive Choir

The West Midlands Inclusive Choir welcomes children and young people of all abilities up to the age of 25 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 sounds
  • Making sounds with an instrument or sound maker 
  • Using technology e.g. 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 sings songs chosen by members and occasionally writes their own songs. Every piece of music is designed so that members can be involved in their own way. 

The choir is free to join, there are no auditions, and you do not need to be able to read music notation. 

The choir meets online on alternate Saturdays at 11am-12pm.
