Sing! ChoirsBack to Activities
Sing! Choirs are open to anyone who loves to sing! There are no auditions and no need to read music. The Cambridge choir meets weekly and sings a range of pop and rock songs, as well as songs from the shows.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- Singing is proven to be excellent for both physical and mental health;
- You get to spend time in a supportive and friendly group, who all have one common goal – to have fun!
- It’s a great way of meeting people, socialising and forming new friendships.
“I just wanted to let you know how much I loved tonight. There was a lovely feeling in the hall. My fit bit heart beat was lower whilst singing than it had been all day”
“I had an absolutely wonderful time and enjoyed every minute. It was therapeutic in many ways, and really took me out of myself.”
