The Advocacy Project Choir

We have set up a community choir

We already have one performance booked for 6 December, and we’d like to hold carol concerts during the run-up to Christmas, in various locations. We also have plans to work with nationally known performers, as well as other community choirs.

It should be an exciting experience!

As well as having a great time, our aims for the choir are:

  • To address social isolation;
  • Promote wellbeing;
  • Create greater community cohesion; and
  • Increase awareness of the value of advocacy in all its various forms.

If you enjoy singing, we’d love you to get involved

You don’t need to audition, and it doesn’t matter if you feel that you can’t sing!

It’s a chance for you to blend your different voices to create a beautiful sound, whether you have previous choir experience or not.


Josh Kyeyune – Music Director

We are lucky to have as one of our independent advocates, and he will be the musical director. He has lots of experience of bringing singers together to perform. There will be a wide range of music, some of which you will probably know well, and some that may be new to you.

We plan to rehearse in a number of different locations, such as shared spaces in care homes and hospitals. The choir will practice on different days of the week so that as many people as possible can join the choir, whatever your other commitments are. The rehearsal dates are in the table below.
