Fran Reynolds takes a look at Carousel Singers: a 30-strong choir of singers with learning disabilities. Carousel Singers was formed in 2011 as part of a Paralympic Project called Gold Run, a multi-media show they devised with support from Carousel, Glyndebourne and Pallant House Gallery.

Since Gold Run, Carousel Singers has continued to meet weekly during term time. The singers have worked with a number of musicians and choir leaders to develop their skills and create new music. Carousel Singers have started working with their own dedicated band of musicians. A lively choir, Carousel Singers is made up of people with a broad range of learning disabilities with an infectious enthusiasm for performing their own compositions. They seek to challenge assumptions of what a choir can be.
