    Introducing our New Choir Name!  Bright ‘N’ Sparks –  Brisbane North Dementia Choir

    Our main focus is supporting people living with dementia and their carers but if you feel you might benefit from our program, for example you have an acquired brain injury, please contact the organisers to discuss this further.
