Requests for appearances

 

We often get requests for Sing Your Heart Out to come and perform at events.

However, Sing Your Heart Out is not a choir which performs, but a series of drop-in workshops held in five different places across Norfolk.

We may be able to help in other ways though

 

Public appearances.

 

SYHO will occasionally get involved in events around particular causes, usually something to do with mental health.

 Our experience has shown us that we need about 6 months notice to do something like this. It it would not be a performance in the conventional sense, but a session where members of the public (or the audience) would be encouraged to sing along with us, rather then be just entertained.

Venues need to be indoors, or in an outside space where there are surfaces which help project the sound. We have discovered that singing in a field doesn't work!

There are expenses involved with this

 

Conferences etc

For these events we can provide a speaker, with Powerpoint or film presentation, telling the story of SYHO, the findings of research on the project, and outlining the benefits. We can tailor this to your needs.

We can also provide a voice coach to lead a singing session if you wish.

Other events

 

We are happy to come to events (wellbeing events, jobs fairs for example) and staff a stall and talk to individuals about SYHO.

We have a pop up banner, and leaflets, and volunteers able to talk knowledgably.

 

Costs

We are a completely volunteer led charity, and many of our volunteers are people with lived experience of mental ill health.

 

We fundraise to pay our voice coaches, and that money has to pay for our regular sessions, so we do need to cover the cost of the fees of the voice coach(es) if one attends your event.

 

If you are interested in requesting either of these, please email us
