Rising Voices Wessex is an organisation that supports people affected by cancer through music and song. Cancer is what brought us together but the main aim of the choir is to help people affected by cancer to recover through singing and music. It is a social activity with a shared experience both at rehearsals and performances. It is our ambition to have fun and enjoy singing – you don’t have to be able to sing to come along and join in. There are health care professionals involved in running the choir as well as professional musical directors.
