Since March 2011, ‘Vibrant Voices’, led by choir-leader extraordinaire, Clare, has met every Wednesday at The Cinnamon Club. Vibrant Voices, supported by the Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Singing for the Brain’ movement, is a weekly choir dedicated specially to those
living with dementia, Parkinson’s diseases, stroke survivors and their carers. Studies have shown that singing even once a week can improve brain activity, well-being and mood, so Vibrant Voices aims to offer a fun and relaxed environment to let go and sing some tunes with friends!
This week, Vibrant Voices received a special visit from the U3A Ukulele group! U3A stands for ‘The University of The Third Age’, a UK-wide community which aims to bring together those in their ‘third age’ in continuing the development of their interests and learning. Founded over thirty years ago, U3A now has over 400,000 members, all bringing their own skills and talents to the table and ready to teach and learn from their peers purely for pleasure!
We are always inspired by our wonderful vibrant voices and we really enjoyed having the equally inspiring U3A with us this week. Thank you for proving that music is a love that stays with you for life, and it’s never too late to do what you love!
Have a lovely week everyone!
