Remote Choir

We are inviting older people around Pembrokeshire to participate in SPAN’s ‘Remote Choir’.  Remote Choir is a singing project, which uses technology to bring older people in different locations together in order to improve health and wellbeing.  

When? Join Molara for an online taster session on Friday 25th June at 11am followed by a season of regular weekly sessions. 

Where? Initially on Zoom however, depending on COVID guidelines we are hoping that some sessions will be delivered in person. 

This is a fully funded project, please contact Nia Lewis to register interest: nia@span-arts.org.uk 

In our previous Remote Choir project 130 people were included, 10 of whom were housebound. Health conditions included dementia, autism, COPD, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, ME and depression.

Through 40 1:2:1 sessions and 2 celebration events the project met its aims and was described as “life-changing”, “important”, “positive”.

People experienced measurable increases in:

·         Wellbeing

·         Quality of life

·         Digital skills

·         Community connections

·         Feelings of worth

·         Confidence in singing

We were very proud when this project was used as a case study on Wales Arts Health & Wellbeing Network website and also cited in an NHS briefing paper.
