Celebrating Singing for Wellbeing

As part of our Starling 10 anniversary festivities, we’ll be working with projects and events that celebrate the power of group singing. Throughout 2019 and 2020, we’ll be bringing people together to explore singing’s potential to forge extraordinary communities.

This work, generously supported by Arts Council England National Lottery Grants, will reach a wide range of groups, including:

  • An accessible, intergenerational singing project engaging dementia patients in hospital, alongside young people who don't usually participate in the arts

  • High-quality singing workshops for Starling Arts choirs, workplace choirs, and the wider community including the Flock Choir, a brand new singing group brought together for the occasion

  • A brand new song recorded by those participants who are able, used as a soundtrack accompanying a mini-documentary and music video highlighting how singing enhances wellbeing for individuals and communities across demographics

Engagement will include:

  • Skill-building rehearsals for members of Starling Arts' choirs including within workplaces

  • Engaging workshops for the wider community formed of alumni members, the general public plus friends and family

  • Uplifting intergenerational hospital workshops engaging patients and school children, including informal performances on site

  • Inspiring song recording offering a new experience for participants

  • Enlightening video engagement, featuring views, experiences and feedback via video for wide-reaching online content, creating a legacy of the project and our message through video, audio and images
