Your Story, Your Voice, Your Stage – Second Movement with Tourettes Action


 call for singers! take part in


 created by a group of adults with TS and composer Michael Betteridge

 the opera has 5 songs for an adult community chorus and we’re looking for people to join!

you don’t need to have any previous experience of singing or performing to take part and the chorus is for everyone in the TS community, allies, friends, family and more

everyone can take part from home and at times of their choosing.

here’s Michael with some more information:


About the opera:

The opera is digital – instead of being performed to a live theatre audience the music and singing is being recorded to create a digital soundtrack, and we’re also making a film to accompany it. The finished digital opera will be shown online and at Tourettes Action events in the summer.

About the chorus:

Chorus members will rehearse and record their parts at home and each part will be incorporated into the soundtrack by a sound engineer. There are video rehearsals and tracks to practice along to and we will provide guidance and support for recording too, using very simple techniques and equipment from the home. There are 5 songs for the chorus and members can record one, some or all! 

Taster Sessions:

Michael is hosting 2 welcome taster sessions on zoom where he will introduce the opera  and the 5 chorus songs and answer any questions about the project or taking part. These are open to everyone and will be on:

9th February 6.30pm-8.30pm and 16h February 6.30pm-8.30pm.

(Chorus members can take part in the project without attending these sessions and make no commitment to taking part by attending.)
