Singing tal­ents demon­strated at mu­si­cal event

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

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.
