About Our Concerts
Why We Stage Concerts
Whilst singing together as a group helps consolidate breathing and voice exercises, performing for an audience adds another layer to the benefits of singing, giving us something to aim for. Nobody is obliged to take part in the concerts; it’s entirely your choice.
Our Monday sessions are a mix of exercises and singing songs old and new, many of which are incorporated into concerts. So in effect we are always “rehearsing”.
Having an audience to perform to is all part of the fun of putting on a show, so we encourage members to invite family and friends and anyone who’d like to come and hear the work we do.
Attending a Concert
It’s free to attend a concert but donations are invited to support the work of Parkinson’s UK. After the concert, there is a tradition of delicious cake and tea.
The songs are going round in my brain today, especially What a Wonderful World – Foggy, Foggy Dew – You’ll Never Walk Alone – Yellow Submarine – Hippopotamus song. Wonderful choices!
