IMPs Hands & Voices taster session at Coastival

13 February 2016, 10:30 – 11:30

Location: Scarborough Art Gallery, The Crescent, Scarborough, England, United Kingdom

IMPs is a weekly term-time inclusive music club for children and young people aged 8 – 21 from Scarborough and the surrounding area which is due to start in summer 2016.

IMPs is to bring disabled and non-disabled children and young people together as equals to make music, forge new friendships, develop skills and confidence and build a greater understanding of the world around them by becoming visible, active members of their local community.

The taster workshop will be followed by an afternoon of performances from local and regional choirs including the Coastival choir, the SJT Global Voices Choir, Hands and Voices Choir, The SJT Youth Choir and the SJT Funky Choir.
