During the last year we have seen, more than ever, how music brings people together, unlocks memories and supports health and wellbeing.
Like many choirs during lockdown, the Rolling Hills Chorus from Edinburgh had to pause their in person rehearsals. They have still been meeting online every week to sing old favourites and learn new songs, but they missed their social contact so choir Director, Rosalind Johnson, started a monthly quiz. They decided to raise money for charities at the same time and in April, they chose Music in Hospitals & Care.
Rosalind said: “For us singing isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life. Creating music with others is an enriching, fulfilling and joyful experience and we are thrilled to have been able to support a wonderful charity like Music in Hospitals & Care that works so hard to bring this experience to those who will benefit so much from it”
A huge thank you to the group, who have raised an amazing £575. They know that music is an essential part of most people’s lives and thanks to their support more people in health and care settings will benefit from the healing power of live music.
Please give today to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.
