Acapella singing - Deception Bay

25 Jan 2022 | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

People singing as a group

Enjoy the physical, emotional, mental and social benefits of group singing in this all ages, all abilities workshop where you are invited to sing for joy!

Drawing on jubilant acapella songs from around the world, facilitators from around the region will gently guide you through a series of simple and effective tunes you can learn and take with you through the year. No previous singing ability is required.

With a focus on round songs and simple parts, you'll be making joyful sounds as a group in no time at all! Family groups are encouraged to attend together as intergenerational participation is sure to guarantee you'll keep singing these songs long after the workshop finishes.

Communal singing has been proven to calm heart rates, boost the immune system, reduce depression and stress and build feelings of social cohesion and closeness. Don't miss this opportunity to start 2022 with a joyful burst of vocal energy.

This event is suitable for all ages. Family attendance is encouraged. Remember to bring along some water.
