From experimental sonic meditations to singing sessions for the homeless, there’s a new spirit of inclusiveness in choirs – and you don’t even need a good voice to join

I have joined a choir by mistake. This time last year, I was adamant I could not sing. But now, here I am, with 15 other people in the Cafe Oto Experimental choir in London, and we are each singing one long, even note, in whatever pitch comes naturally: this is the composer Pauline Oliveros’s Sonic Meditations.
