CeleBRation Choir

Working together to improve lives

CBR CeleBRation Choir 2018

The CeleBRation Choir is a therapeutic community singing group for adults living with an acquired neurological condition, such as stroke, aphasia, Parkinson’s disease, dementia or traumatic brain injury. Research shows that singing may help people with voice, speech, language or memory problems and provides positive social experiences. The choir programme includes warm-ups, exercises and a wide variety of songs. Whether you have much or absolutely no singing experience, we aim to enjoy singing and a social time together. Currently led by co-founder, music therapist and doctoral student Alison Talmage, the Choir celebrates its tenth birthday in 2019. We also welcome carers/partners and volunteer inquiries. Please contact us before visiting.
