Cost: We suggested a contribution of £2 per person per session
What to expect: We begin with group-building activities and move onto singing warm-ups, including physical relaxation, breathing and gentle vocal exercises. Then we learn simple songs in parts. As part of this process, we encourage sharing and discussion, so that people get the chance to be part of the group and widen their social networks.
At the end of each term, the members of the singing group will have the opportunity to take home a CD of all the songs that they have learnt and sung that term, so they can continue to enjoy listening and singing along to them in their own home.
Trips: As part of the singing workshop, we also run various day trips throughout the year for our members. Previous trips have included:
Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
Picnic at Forge Dam
Performances: To give something back to the local community, we give performances of the songs that have been learnt at the workshops at various local places, which have previously included:
- St Peter’s Summer Fate
- SAGE Open Day
How to join: For further information and to book your place on the workshops please contact SAGE on 0114 273 7718 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
