Michaelhouse SingersBack to Activities
The Michaelhouse Singers are a friendly, welcoming choir open to anybody with a mental health condition and their carers and friends. You don't need to have any previous singing experience to join.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- Singing can reduce stress and release endorphins which make you feel good;
- It’s a great way of meeting people, socialising and forming new friendships;
- Connecting with other people who have had similar experiences can make you feel less isolated.

What to expect?
The choir meets every Friday at the Michaelhouse Centre on Trinity Street in the centre of Cambridge. They sing songs in a wide range of styles, including classical pieces, folk songs and jazz. The friendly group leader will support you feel relaxed and sing with the group, even if you have never tried anything like this before.
Wear something comfortable and easy to move in, as singing is a whole body experience. Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
You can join the choir for a free taster session
Arts and Minds ask for a small contribution from those attending the choir. However, they do not wish finance to present a barrier. Therefore, they are always happy to discuss / waive contributions where appropriate.
