"Not only we will continue our life, but will do that the way that we want and love."
In these words, one of the students in the choir of Imam Sadr Foundation reflected the motivations of her band to participate in a national event despite the contrived barriers between regions and communities. And with all the enthusiasm and hope, the choir persevere spreading joy and transmitting impulses of love in all occasions and seasons, where they take part.
The concept emerged with students with special needs. It was thought that the introduction of music in rehabilitation programs would help mostly to control their neuromuscular system, as will liberate more inherent energy, including relieving themselves and raise their morale. Soon, additional positive effects appeared on the performance of students as individual, as well as on their orchestral performance. It is a life completely different in form and in content, a new life began.
In the following years, the teaching staff was trained on how to use the music as an educational instrument. Quickly, the new methodology was applied in the entire educational system in the Foundation. The nucleus of the choir was few girls. Nowadays, it includes not less than forty students between the ages of six and sixteen years old. View video
