REDinc’s signing choir perform at Regeneration.

REDinc’s signing choir will be performing at the free Regeneration community festival on Saturday at the Mullum Community Garden.

The signing choir was formed over 16 years ago when Kaz Southon, longtime facilitator of the program, saw a need for participants at REDinc to be involved in a singing, dancing, and signing program, which was open for all participants to join.

REDinc provides creative, educational and vocational opportunities to people with disabilities in the Northern Rivers, including the much-loved signing choir. The belongingness of the choir is what makes it so special.

As Kaz says, the disabilities disappear. ‘We are actually seeing beautiful humans sharing their love of music.’

The choir will be performing three songs: ‘From Now On’ (written by Justin Paul & Benj Pasek) from the film The Greatest Showman; ‘Follow the Sun’ by Xavier Rudd; and ‘Hold Back the River’ by James Bay.

The performance will be dedicated to Amy Serone, who passed away late last year. Amy was a longstanding member of the choir and is greatly missed.

The choir is bubbling with excitement to perform at the weekend – they hope to see you there, singing, signing, dancing, or just regenerating. 

You can check out the program and pick up a free ticket at regeneration.mullumseed.org.au
