Following on from an uplifting and inspiring Taster Session on Friday 6 April with the Voice of Hope Wellbeing Gospel Choir, those on the journey towards wellness along with their supporters or those who just love to sing gospel are invited to join the Voice of Hope Wellbeing Gospel Choir for 10 weeks of inspirational singing at the BRI’s Sanctuary starting Friday 20 April at 6pm.
Taster session participants sing gospel in a fully engaging workshop expertly led by Choir Director Kim Samuels.
When asked about the reasons behind the Voice of Hope Wellbeing on such an in-demand topic, choir director Kim Samuels says: “Wintertime can be an emotionally low time for many people, and their carers who are supporting them. The choir sessions begin in springtime to encourage and boost the spirits of participants. I have been conducting gospel choirs in London and now Bristol for over 30 years and have come to understand the power of singing gospel music in a choir setting for our wellbeing where we get to sing from the heart in a friendly and supportive environment. The rehearsal space is kindly being provided by the Chaplaincy at the BRI.”
To fully benefit from the therapeutic effects of singing in a choir, committing to a block of regular choir sessions will make a real difference when it comes to boosting wellbeing. The Taster workshop on 6 April was an excellent starting point especially for individuals who hadn’t experienced singing in a gospel choir. Some taster session participants have already signed up for the block of sessions starting on 20th April.
We are also expecting others who either had a really positive experience attending the taster session or are just curious to experience the joy and encouragement that comes when you sing gospel in a choir to also sign up for the next full term with the Voice of Hope Wellbeing Gospel Choir.
Interested parties can find the most up-to-date information about the upcoming term of choir sessions at voiceofhopechoir.org. Individuals with specific questions about the choir may contact Voice of Hope Wellbeing Gospel Choir via the Contact
