In 2018 we brought 32 young people together to spend the week learning new music with the course culminating in a spectacular performance in Leicester Cathedral. Since then, we have supported over 100 young refugees and asylum-seekers aged 16 – 26 to find new friends whilst enjoying making music.
You can see the beginning of our journey through this Channel Four video.
We recently brought together a new group of young refugees and asylum-seekers to take part in a residential weekend in Bristol. We spent the weekend making music, creating new friends and topped it off with a performance at Bristol Beacon. We’re so thankful for all the people who supported us.
We have secured more funding to help us to carry out similar residential weekends and will be sharing all details here. If you would like to get involved with the EYM Refugee Choir, then please get in touch!
