For people with neurological conditions to find their voice again
About the Choir
Cantabrainers Choir is a therapeutic choir for people with neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and brain injury. Led by a registered music therapist and a registered speech language therapist, participation in Cantabrainers Choir helps people improve their voice and communication through singing and socialising.
I can get my breathing better from singing and I can go louder and longer
Finding words can be a struggle for me, the Choir is helping them to flow better.
Choir helps me get my head around remembering things and learning things again.
I enjoy it, I’m just very, very happy. I can’t wait for the next week.
We forget we’re in a wheelchair when we’re here, our wheels and problems disappear. All the friendship and fun, make us feel as one, and fills our hearts with good cheer.
