I’ve just spent half an hour this morning singing with the Artistic Director of the World Champion Barnsley Youth Choir – yes, really – and I now feel on top of the world!
I think Mat Wright MBE and Musical Directors Eleanor Wright and Luke Mather intend this to be for children to help keep them occupied during lockdown – but I have a sneaking suspicion it has a huge number of adults joining in too!
And already there are participants from all over the world which is remarkable when you consider the first session was only yesterday morning.
You can sing from the privacy of your own living room or bedroom and nobody can hear you although I do believe some of the participants are singing along in their gardens. I’m not brave enough to do that just yet but I enjoyed singing loudly in my office.
Eleanor and Luke also provide some fabulous harmonies and you actually do feel you have a great voice!!
It’s completely free and happening each day at 10am on Facebook. I’m sharing the link from today’s session below in case you want to give it a go.
