The London Stroke Choir is open to stroke survivors from anywhere in London, not just people from Lambeth and Southwark.
Researchers have found that people who have lost the ability to communicate due to severe brain damage can regain it by singing the words. They believe that the melody can help the brain rewire itself so that it can bypass the damaged regions of the mind and so communicate.
The choir is free to join and taught by professional singing teacher Abigail Sudbury.
Abigail completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Vocal and Opera Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, prior to this, a Masters Degree in Voice, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Concert Singing from Goldsmith’s College and the University of London. She is a professional opera singer, a recitalist, an actress, a singing teacher, a choir leader and and workshop leader working with people of all abilities, and her focus is to inspire people to find enjoyment and confidence through Singing. She also works with the education departments of Opera Companies and Orchestra, charities for people with dementia and special needs.
The choir rehearsals are held at Morley College, who have very kindly given us a free rehearsal space for a number of years.
