What is it?
We are a welcoming community choir open to anyone, and welcome those with a mental health condition, their carers and friends. Young people over 12 years of age are very welcome to attend with an accompanying adult.
Is there a cost?
We encourage choir members to contribute to the running costs of the choir (with a suggested contribution of £5 per session). However, we believe that cost should never be a barrier to positive mental health, so if this contribution is not feasible for you, please contact us and we will find a solution together.
When and where is it held?
We meet for an hour on Friday afternoons at St Michael’s Church (Michaelhouse Centre) in the centre of Cambridge, during term time only.
What do previous participants say?
“A great variety of pieces we rehearse and the general good humour and positive attitude of the group.”
"I find the singing immensely uplifting. I look forward to it.”
“Very positive. A protective factor for my wellbeing.”
What can I expect?
You can expect a variety of vocal exercises and songs led by an experienced choir leader in a sociable environment, with the occasional public performance if you wish to take part. No previous singing experience is required.
How do I find out more?
