Launch of Choir Bursary for Mental Health Awareness Week

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week (May 14th-20th), we are launching a bursary for singers to enable them to join Victoria Park Singers (Hackney) or Kensington Singers (Earls Court). The Choir Bursary is for adults aged 18+ who would like to attend the choir but due to their financial situation are currently unable to do so. We are especially welcoming applications from people who feel singing would have a positive impact on their physical or mental health. The bursary will fund will cover 90% of the fee needed to attend either Victoria Park Singers or Kensington Singers.

No previous experience is necessary. We are very friendly, and all applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

Conductor Hannah says:
“London life can be busy, stressful, and isolating, with long commutes between where we work and where we live. Making time for ourselves is so important to help us enjoy life and get some balance, and singing takes your brain somewhere else; being creative, learning new music and skills, meeting new people  – its a total win! I’d encourage anyone who has been putting off doing something for themselves to take that first step, be it joining a choir, or any other hobby. We really look forward to hearing from you.”
