Celebration Choir has recorded a song
Published on 21/5/2021
The CeleBRation Choir, a community singing group for adults living with an acquired neurological condition, has recorded a song written especially for them called Celebration.
The CeleBRation Choir is a community singing group for adults living with an acquired neurological condition, such as stroke, aphasia, Parkinson’s disease, dementia or traumatic brain injury. Led by music therapist and doctoral student Alison Talmage, the choir has been running since 2009. Not even the pandemic could stop the choir, who gathered over Zoom to sing, chat and maintain a sense of connection during lockdown. It was during one of these Zoom meetings that Ben played for the choir as a guest musician—an event which left a lasting impact.
Composer Ben Fernandez was so inspired by a piano performance he did for the CeleBRation Choir that he composed a song for them during lockdown—complete with vocals for the choir to sing.
