About the event

We are opening our regular singing session to visitors so you can come and see for yourselves the health benefits of singing together  for this group of people living with Parkinsons.

You are most welcome to join in with the session so you can experience it for yourselves.

We  do physical and vocal warm-ups to strengthen and support  the voice  and do rhythmic movements to keep the body flowing.

We sing for fun and for our delight, a mix of popular songs, world music , folk and gospel as well as songs from the Natural Voice repertoire in unaccompanied harmony.  

We perform regularly.

Members of the group will share  how the group affects them. Tea and cake will be served!

Led by Pauline McWilliams Natural Voice Practitioner.
The session is aimed at Health Professionals, Medical Students, Community Musicians and people living with Parkinsons.
The session is Free
