We are excited to share a remarkable event that unfolded on 25th May 2023 when The
Memory Choir embarked on a truly unique and ground-breaking endeavour. Our voices
filled the judge’s library in Winchester Crown Court, where judges and other dignitaries
gathered to witness a powerful fusion of music and community spirit. This event
marked a significant milestone as it was the first of its kind for a choir like us in the
United Kingdom. The entire audience embraced the opportunity to become active
participants, with their voices blending with the choirs. It was a remarkable sight,
seeing esteemed judges and dignitaries set aside their formal roles and immerse
themselves in the collective experience of music. One judge had arrived late, and
rapidly de-robed so that he could join in with the choir. Following the performance, the
feedback from the audience was resoundingly positive.
The grandeur of Winchester Crown Court provided a fitting backdrop for our
performance. There was a sense of unity between us all.
