As part of Mental Health Awareness Week and Creativity and Wellbeing Week, the Culture Diary is sharing some arts and cultural resources for the sector and everyone with an interest in it.
Music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins offers a chance for you to sing with others in a weekly choir on Tuesdays. The charity explains:
"Music has a power unlike anything else, and singing plays a key role in that. It’s an essential means of staying well, of promoting social bonds and strengthening communities. Just because we can’t meet in person doesn’t mean we can’t continue to sing together!
Full joining instructions will be sent via email so please register in advance."
The choir meets every Tuesday at 4pm.
Sign up here. You will also find weekly song sheets for songs like 'Let It Be', 'Lovely Day', 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', 'Sweet Home Alabama', and 'Valerie'.
Nordoff Robbins asks you to share your name and email address to send send you joining details each week.
The choir uses Zoom – so you will need access to a computer or smartphone.
The choir always welcomes new members from all backgrounds. – there’s no necessary prior experience required. If you would like to find out more, get in touch with: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not want to sing but would like to support this resource (which is free to join), you can donate here.
