A lovely way to connect with the community and support Dementia Forward.
The Skipton choir has invited singing enthusiasts to join them in a virtual performance of a song specially composed by the choir’s musical director David and his sister, Rebecca.
The performance of We Will Sing Again aims to benefit Dementia Forward which supports local people living with dementia and those who care for them. Nearly 40 people have signed up to join in with the existing choir to make the recording. Individual recordings are completed by 14 July and then the final combined version will be revealed in August 2020.
As David explains “Music is a lifeline for many people, particularly at the moment. And for those living with dementia, their music memories are often unaffected by the disease in the same way as other memories – singing can make a huge difference to their wellbeing. Given the benefits of singing for everyone, we also thought it would be good to involve the wider community with a song especially written for our times.”
Please help us support Dementia Forward by making a donation if you can.
