Singing talents demonstrated at musical event
MEMBERS of Dundee Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society and friends demonstrated their singing talents at a musical event held in Dundee.
The afternoon event, at the Wighton Centre, Central Library, i n the Wellgate, was the culmination of Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust’s (THAT) musicality programme.
Singing coach Alice Marra worked with the participants during the eight-session programme, which was designed to explore creativity and build peer support through group singing in a fun and enjoyable way.
Alice said: “This group has really grown together in confidence and it has been great to see.
“We have worked hard on complex harmonies and arrangements and got to know each other through music, while having great fun.
“They have been a lovely group of people to work with and have really enjoyed this opportunity.”
THAT development officer Karine Neill said: “It has been brilliant. We have managed to recruit people who have never been involved with the MS group or any of our programmes before.
“They have made new friends and gained so much confidence through the singing.
“Our work is to provide new opportunities for people with a variety of conditions so they can improve their wellbeing through creative measures.”
THAT promotes the therapeutic value of arts-based programmes to enhance quality of life, promote social inclusion and to empower the individual to make an important contribution to their health and wellbeing.
