Silver Singers will generally learn a new song every week which joins their collection in their personal song folders. They work towards regular performances in local venues and in the community.
Singing has a significant amount of health benefits such as strengthening the immune system, improving posture and helping with sleep. It can be a natural anti-depressant as singing is known to release endorphins - the feel-good brain chemical that makes you feel uplifted and happy.
ARC’s Silver Programme is supported by a Cultural Volunteers scheme which helps participants to attend and participate in over 50s activity. For more information and to meet our current volunteers, please click here.
