Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Free Online Singing Event - Singing It Out

Sunday Feb. 28 @ 2:00pm utc – 3:00pm utc

(Press release)

'Singing It Out' provides online singalong sessions to help combat loneliness and improve mental wellbeing through song.

Having been developed with funding from Leeds Inspired, a small grant from Live Well Leeds is enabling you to attend this session FOR FREE!

It was great fun and my mood was dramatically better than it had been before by the end of the session. Singing is definitely a great aid in raising your mood. Great choice of songs too.”

Was a bit daunted about standing up and singing, but this was a lovely safe space and actually was a lot of fun.

Absolutely no singing experience needed; in fact, no one will hear you as you'll be 'on mute.'

Email to register your interest.

Lyrics sheets and Zoom Link will be sent out prior to the session.

If you require additional resources for accessibility (close-captioning, BSL etc.) please let me know ASAP!
