Age Concern (Age UK) Singing for Fun and Wellbeing Groups are for people aged 50 or older. We meet weekly in term time and all the groups vary depending on who comes along. Many people say to me ‘I can’t sing’ but whether this is true or not, it doesn’t seem to affect their enjoyment of the sessions.
We sing a variety of songs; hymns, songs from shows, popular favourites, folk songs, songs from around the world, gospel, jazz….. We sing unaccompanied; in unison, or in parts. In particular we sing a lot of rounds as they are a fun and straightforward way of getting everyone singing together in harmony. We also sing songs accompanied by the guitar, and sometimes we use percussion instruments. We learn songs by ear, and from song sheets.
All sessions cost £2.50, except for your first session which is free. Sessions will start week commencing Monday 7th June 2010 and run to the end of July 2010.
