There is a growing body of scientific evidence explaining what community singers have always known, that singing’s good for us! The Sidney de Haan Centre for Research, which is part of Canterbury University, has been researching into the health benefits of singing for more than a decade and reports that singing brings about “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely an absence of illness or infirmity.”
This is what Span Arts have found out too with their inspiring community singing projects over the last 5 years. The intergenerational choir Côr Pawb has been promoting the wellbeing benefits of singing through their community singing days and performances. The Caring Choirs project brings singing into care settings around the county resulting a very special group of voices.
Span Arts will be launching an exciting new singing initiative, Raise Your Voice Pembrokeshire, at Narberth’s A Capella Voice Festival. Côr Pawb join with the ‘Caring Choirs’ group for a very special fundraising one-off performance and exhilarating record-breaking attempt.
The Multi-Generational Choir Record Breaking Attempt will bring people aged from 0 – 99 together to sing in unison. We aim to have as many ages represented as possible. You are invited to join this one-off multi-generational choir, sing along in unison to rousing and uplifting songs.
So please come along to help to finish the NAVF Festival off in style, feel the power of song lift your soul, swell your heart and boost your wellbeing!
