Adult & Workplace Choirs
The health and well being benefits of singing are well documented. Team building and stress relief are high on the agenda with a workplace choir without the need to force the issue. Workplace choirs are a great, cost effective way of bringing together staff from all different departments of the workplace. Your choir could have anything from 6 members upwards with no upper limit. In environments where shift patterns change it can be effective to have a nucleus of your choir who attend on regular basis with others attending around their shift pattern.
Our Current Workplace and Adult Choirs
Hesley Group Staff Choir
Hesley Group work with young people and adults with severe learning difficulties. Administration staff and support workers come together for a weekly singing session. Several of the residents now come along with their support workers to listen to the choir. Staff believe the choir is having a positive effect on residents as well as the staff
Strawberry Island Singers
Strawberry Island is a boat club in the heart of Doncaster with in excess of 120 boats. A high percentage of the membership are retired and the club has a very active social section. Formed in 2014 SIBC Singers meet for 2 hours on Sunday mornings out of the boating season. Christmas 2014 saw the choir make their debut performance in their own clubhouse, followed one week later by a memorable appearance at Doncaster Minster along with our other choirs. Spring 2015 saw the choir come away from the Don Valley Festival with 1st Prize and a very nice trophy for the cabinet in their clubhouse.
Breathing Space Choir
Breathing Space Choir was formed in September 2016 on a trial basis to evaluate the health benefits of singing for respiratory patients. It has proved to be a great success on all levels. The choir membership of 20 plus are all reporting improvements in breathing and are able to apply the techniques learned to everyday life.
Musically the choir have gone from singing in unison to performing pieces in 3 and 4 part harmony.
They rehearse at 11am every Monday morning and made their debut performance in July at the 10th anniversary celebrations of Breathing Space.
Rainbow Connection Friends
Our newest choir is the brainchild of Zoe Battiscombe Scott, who asked if we would consider running a group for parents. We thought this was a great idea and have now opened this up to adults who want a fun group.
They rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7pm to 8pm at Hill House School.
