Group music making (and singing) boosts participants' feelings of purpose and belonging, improves mood, increases endorphins and much more.
Anyone who has been touched by mental illness and would like to use their voice is welcome!
No experience is necessary, just a willingness to sing and learn more. Come one, come all!
It’s a non-illness focused, safe, social activity for people touched by mental illness. HIGH NOTES VOICES’ performances will inspire others to find THEIR voices, to be heard and understood.
The group will meet on Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00 pm with the first session on February 4th, at the Richmond Hill Centre for Performing Arts’ Plaza Suite (with some sessions at Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church).
The cost is $79/10-week-session and includes social refreshment break. But no one will be turned away for financial reasons.
Songs will be selected in accordance with the capacity and likes and dislikes of our participants.
Musical notation will be taught (as needed) and everyone will be given a music folder to bring each week.
The High Notes Voices choir will be led by Sina Fallah.
The hope is to get the choir ready to perform at the April 21 High Notes Gala and many other places--but please do not let your stage freight stop you from registering--performances aren't mandatory. Down the road we may separate into beginner, intermediate, youth, senior and performance choirs but right now we welcome everyone to join in.
For more information or to register please contact Ingrid Taheri Artistic & Executive Director HIGH NOTES AVANTE PRODUCTIONS INC. at [email protected] 416.605.8915
This choir project would not be possible, if it wasn't for the support of CMHA York Region, the Richmond Hill Hall Charitable Association, Bell Canada and Angela Lam of Desjardins.
Come find your inner voice and have fun using it! TOGETHER we will find harmony for people living with mental illness and their families.
