The Autistic Adult Choir is the world’s first and only performing adult autistic choir.
Co-founded in 2015 by Henry Tillman, Chairman, and Jill Bradford, Choirmaster, with initially only 5 members, TAAC is now a fully fledged 20-member choir with singers throughout the UK, based in London with its home at St Botolph’s without Aldgate.
The Autistic Adult Choir seeks to develop the musical skills and creativity of adults on the autistic spectrum, and is open to every adult with their diagnosis who wishes to participate, regardless of prior musical knowledge. In providing a safe space which can foster the talents and skills of autistic adults, it seeks to mitigate the social exclusion and marginalisation which many autistic adults experience. The choir’s members say that the rehearsals and performances give them a good opportunity to meet other autistic people, help them become more confident and are fulfilling.
Music For Autism International has been the primary source of funding for TAAC to date.
TAAC has also received contributions from private donors.
We would like to thank Addison Lee for providing transportation to selected TAAC members for the choir sessions and concerts.
We would be delighted to joined by other possible supporters in this unique venture.
