Our Project is to take 50 of our choir members to London to perform around the city and participate in workshops with industry professionals!
We are Soundsational Community Music, a non profit, community organisation based just outside Glasgow, Scotland. As part of our organisation we run three choirs starting from age 5; "Little Soundsational", Junior Soundsational and our adult choir. We perform a huge variety of genres from pop to soul and gospel.
Part of our ethos here at Soundsational is social inclusion. So, to make it accessible to our members, we decided to fundraise to completely cover the cost of the trip. As part of the trip we will be able to perform at several locations around the city! Also, we will be getting the amazing opportunity to take part in a workshop at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford and perform there! The chance to work with these industry professionals is a once in a lifetime opportunity! For many of our members here at Soundsational, they would not get this opportunity from anywhere else.
All of our members spend much of their time helping us to fundraise for many other charities so a chance to improve their music skills whilst building confidence and self-esteem would be an incredible achievement for us! Our trip will be taking place over 3 days in February and we have already begun to raise the cash. We have acquired the transport to and from London and have raised £9000 to go towards accommodation and transport around the city. However, we are still short and so £2,500, our target for this crowdfunder project, could make this project happen. This money will further go towards these costs. It will be an amazing achievement if we can take our members on a life-changing trip.
All donations made to this cause will be deeply appreciated! If you would like to find out more about us, please check out the links below!
