Reading Phoenix Choir are partnering with Age UK Reading to deliver a singing workshop and joint concert with older people and their carers as part of the choir’s 50th season on 25th May at St Mary’s Church Burghfield.
The workshop will offer participants an afternoon of singing with the choir’s professional Musical Director, Christopher Hann, leading to a joint evening performance with the choir.
The choir believes that the older people will experience the physical, mental and emotional benefits of singing during the workshop that will promote and support:
- their health and an improved feeling of wellbeing
- a fun and enjoyable experience with their family members/carers
- increased confidence
- introduction to a new physical activity
- experience of performing with a high quality choir
