Solihull Associate Choir

A Musical Community Without Barriers

The Solihull Associate Choir welcomes people aged 25 years and under, and their families/carers.  It is administered by Solihull Music Service and supported by Soundabout.

Please sign up or find out more information on the choir.

The choir celebrates that everyone has their own way of sharing their voice. Here are a few examples of ways you could join in:

  • Singing or vocalisations
  • Making sounds with an instrument or sound maker
  • Using technology e.g. an iPad or EyeGaze
  • Movement and dance
  • Signing; We use a mix of movement, BSL, Signalong and Makaton to interpret lyrics*

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.

*We do not claim to be Makaton, Signalong or BSL accredited. We work closely with volunteers, choir members and use resources available on YouTube to create our signing videos and inform our delivery. Our aim is to support musical engagement and enjoyment through movement. Please visit MakatonSignalong and/or BSL for more information and more accredited ways to learn.

Why People Love Being Part of Our Choir Network

To see my daughter’s face light up when she was asked to play her ukulele was priceless …

I heard my son sing quite a lot and attempt to join in at times. He also tried to sign, which he hasn’t engaged with before.
My daughter loves to take part in recordings and works hard to learn all the songs. She loves picking out voices of other choir members on recording.

The Solihull Inclusive Choir is run by  Solihull Music Service & Hub
