Our Young Dissenters pilot project 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.
Young Dissenters was generously sponsored for 18 months by local independent financial advisers Ruth Whitehead Associates and now we’re delighted to announce that 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.
We have appointed an artistic director and Young Dissenters will begin in September. Sessions will be on Tuesday afternoons from 4-5pm at St Matthias Hall, working towards concerts for friends and families, and performing big public events with Chorus of Dissent.
