The Arc of Tuscaloosa County

Sounds of Joy

From jazzy big band tunes to old gospel hymns, the Sounds of Joy has performed for organizations throughout Tuscaloosa County and beyond.  The message the choir conveys is clear: Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities possess many abilities.

Reflecting the spirit of The Arc, the choir does, indeed, make a joyful sound.  Comprised of consumers, staff members, and volunteers, plus one hard working director, this is a great program at The Arc of Tuscaloosa County.

Founded in 1998, the Sounds of Joy performs for thousands of individuals annually.  Organizations that have enjoyed the delightful sounds include The United Way of West Alabama, The University of Alabama, United Cerebral Palsy Telethon, Alabama Special Olympics as well as many civic organizations and churches in the county, just to name a few. 

The choir is supported through donations from local organizations and individuals.

If your organization has a special event coming up or would like to just experience the Sounds of Joy, call The Arc of Tuscaloosa County, (205) 556-4900 or email Vickie, to book the group.
