A musical community without barriers! Sign up now

We are excited to announce that the Coventry branch of the Soundabout Inclusive Choir will be launching in Coventry this weekend. Everyone is welcome and there will be chance for a cup of tea, some cake and a chat after the music making has finished. Let's help make this special and be a part of something amazing.

Book your place now.

The Coventry 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 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. 

When & Where?

We are offering a mixture of face-to-face and virtual rehearsals so that you can join in however is best for you! Click here for dates of upcoming rehearsals.
