We’re delighted to announce that we have appointed local musician James Moriarty as artistic director and Young Dissenters will be singing again from Tuesday 11 September 2018.
Sessions are Tuesday afternoons 4.30-5.30pm at St Matthias Hall, working towards concerts for friends and families, and performing big public events with Chorus of Dissent. Cost is £10 per term.
Everyone is welcome to join – contact James at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Young Dissenters pilot project was generously sponsored for 18 months by local independent financial advisers Ruth Whitehead Associates and now the charity we set up in 2017 to create artistic and cultural opportunities for our community DissentersArtsN16 has raised enough money so young voices can start to raise the roof again.
Young Dissenters gave local young people from a variety of backgrounds a fantastic experience of singing with a composer, performing some concerts with our adult community choir Chorus of Dissent (including selling out Stokey Town Hall) – and reached the dizzying heights of recording the CD A Hum About Mine Ears with internationally acclaimed vocalist and composer Clara Sanabras.
We’re looking forward to hearing a lot more from them!
