Sherwood Open Voices Concert

It was magnificent to attend the performance of songs from ‘Les Miserables’ (pictured below!) at the Sherwood Open Voices concert in St Martin’s Church this morning – a special group for adults with learning difficulties, established by volunteers who coordinate ‘Music For Everyone’ in Nottingham.

The chorus of performers were supported by other singers from Music for Everyone’s ‘Daytime Voices’ group and it was great to have the wider community come together with Mencap Nottingham and other carer’s groups to make this a very special occasion.

Music is a great way to help boost social inclusion and give a real sense of purpose to those who might be otherwise isolated and it was especially good to hear the news of their recent success with a National Lottery grant!
