Working in partnership to help young people access music is essential to help us move towards our vision of helping all young people in the borough to make, be inspired by and celebrate the music they love. By actively looking for partnerships, we can create new and exciting opportunities for young people to get involved with.
Sutton Music Trust has teamed up with the Cognus Autism Team to launch a new choir aimed at Autistic children and young people in Sutton. The idea of the Sutton Autistic Youth Choir (SAYC) is to create a choir adapted to meet the needs of Autistic singers and create a comfortable environment for them to enjoy singing as a group.
Eleven children aged 8-13 participated in this initial project, kindly supported by Wallington Library. After a successful trial, Sutton Music Trust plan to continue the project into the 2023-2024 Academic Year.
