Singing for Behçet’s UK! |
December 23rd, 2019

Evolution Choir, based in Salisbury,  have nominated Behçet’s UK as their ‘dedicated charity’, in recognition of and supportive to group member Cat who has Behçet’s and have already collected £332 from pre-Christmas gigs!

Founded in 2007 by Singing Teacher and Confidence Coach Lilli Badcock, the group has built a reputation over the years as a fun and supportive environment to build confidence, learn to sing and make new friends.  

It is a non-audition group and every member is given the opportunity to sing a solo, but there is no pressure to do so. Evo offers the unique combination of professional training with a huge element of FUN!  A huge part of why Evolution works so well is because it is run from pure passion and a love of performing. Cat loves singing with them.  

The choir have recently auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, and will know in February if they have ‘caught the judge’s eye’
