This is a concert in aid of Singing for the Brain
Tickets are £8 (£4 concessions): Available from choir members and at Otley Courthouse or on-line (subject to a small booking fee) at the link above.
Singing for the Brain uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment. Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for all sorts of people – people with dementia and their carers, people who have suffered brain injuries, anyone experiencing memory loss, people who just want to keep their brains active – to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group. Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-preserved memory for song and music in the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall. Sessions take place at Otley Courthouse on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month from 2-4pm.
Otley Singers Community Choir sing primarily for pleasure, though occasionally perform in concert.
