Renowned classical music group, Cappella Nova, are teaming up with the Eric Liddell Centre, a care charity and community hub, to provide a workshop on promoting health and wellbeing through song.
The session will take place on 7th August at the Centre, based in South Edinburgh, and be led by Anne Lewis, the Outreach leader for Cappella Nova who runs Health and Wellbeing Through Song as a popular course at Strathclyde University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning.
People of all abilities are encouraged to come along, from beginners who have only ever sang along to the radio or in the shower, to people who have never had the opportunity to sing with others.
Using a range of summer songs from all around the UK, the structured workshop aims to bring people together in an effort to boost their confidence and promote the physical health benefits of singing within a group.
John MacMillan, CEO of the Eric Liddell Centre said: “We are really excited to welcome Cappella Nova to the Centre as this will be an excellent opportunity for local people to get involved in singing, possibly for the first time ever. It is anticipated that this will be the first of many musical developments in partnership with Cappella Nova.”
