Description

We’re incredibly excited to announce the launch of our brand new choir and music project

Come along and get involved!

If you love music, singing and performing, this is definitely for you.

Whether you’re a total beginner or a pro, you will be welcome.

More of a musical magician than a singer?

This music project goes beyond singing, it has something for everyone.

Do you play an instrument, dance, rap, beatbox, write songs, produce your own music? Come along and see what you can bring to the mix.

Are you are interested in sound engineering or documentary filming?

Come and get involved, the RSBC Choir needs you too.

What will you be working towards?

Be part of our journey working towards putting on an epic Concert performance in 2017. You’ll play a major role in composing, writing and performing a brand new original song, which will be the star attraction of the show.

In addition to this, you’ll get the chance to work with some music legends – the sessions are led by our fantastic choir master and professional singer Victoria, who is vision impaired herself, and Mohammed our sound engineer and producer.

When and where do you meet?

The RSBC Choir meets twice a month in East London and is open to anyone that is vision impaired between the ages of 11 – 25.
