So what is Raise the Roof Kids Choir all about?

Raise the Roof Kids Choir news

Founded in 2012, Raise the Roof Kids Choir is based in Ballymena and is directed by local musician, Alyson Reid, who also leads the Voice of Hope choir.

Raise the Roof consists of around 60 local young people aged from seven years and up. Their goal is to raise funds to build a seven classroom school in Uganda by giving concerts. They made their debut appearance in the Braid Arts Centre, Ballymena in January 2013. Since then they have given numerous performances including Stormont and the Dalriada festival, Glenarm.

Alyson told The Church Page: “The choir is diverse and members come from all sectors of the community. Together we celebrate the creativity of our local children and our vision is to help the children of Uganda find hope for the future.
Watch out for us as we travel to our events in our wonderful Raise the Roof big yellow bus.”
