Singalongs run regularly on Monday and Friday mornings from 10.30 to 11.30 followed by social time in smaller group breakout rooms. The online Singalong sessions have received 100% enjoyment rating from Voices:MK & St Albans singers who completed a recent survey.
Two daytime choirs, St Albans SIngers and Voices:MK are part of David Meek’s SingingXtra. They have changed how they meet and started singing together online at the beginning of April 2020.

SINGERS WHO CARE
Musical memories rekindled
Singing in groups can enthuse and inspire, whatever an individual's background or ability. There are many benefits, both physical and mental, especially when singing in groups and, of course, for those listening.
We don’t just turn up, sing our songs and depart! Those listening are encouraged to take part, share memories, remember people and places they associate with the music. Some might sit quietly and listen with a smile on their face as they enjoy the music and reminisce but most singalong, laugh at the humour and fully engage with the activity. After a singalong session I’ve often been told by care staff about the really positive impacts singing has on residents; for example, someone who normally retreats to his room has stayed and joined in.
