The Athens County Community Singers (ACCS), a non-profit organization, is a “choir for all voices”, those with and without disabilities. Formed in 2013, founder and director, Stephanie H. Morris, MM, MT-BC, and Neurologic Music Therapy Fellow wanted a community-based group in Athens County Ohio. Before its formation, many individuals with disabilities had never had an opportunity to perform, however, with the creation of the choir, many are now able to fulfill their dream of belonging to a performance group and give back to their community. Most importantly, the Athens County Community Singers was created specifically to allow those with and without disabilities to perform together in an environment, which promotes inclusion and acceptance no matter what that individual’s abilities or disabilities. While some choir members are challenged to communicate in a traditional way, their smiles and vocalizations give evidence to their enjoyment of music and being a part of the group.
