Singers of all abilities are being invited to Sing Your Heart Out next week, to meet up with others online and enjoy a coffee and a singalong.

Sing Your Heart out (SYHO) is a Norfolk organisation which was formed in 2005 to bring the benfits of group singing to those struggling with mental heath issues.

The North group was launched in 2017 and draws singers from all round the north Norfolk area, with around 45 singers meeting at each workshop, which are usually held at the Lighthouse, Sheringham. 

Songs are taught by ear so there is no need to read music, and there are definitely no auditions

During Lockdown the group has been unable to meet and sing together but the multi talented music tutors have been uploading songs onto the website SYHO Singing workshops in Norfolk  

On July 20, the group will be trialling a new initiative with a Virtual Coffee Morning, with a song, from 10.30 to 11.30 am.

Jane Wells (music tutor) and Angela Mason outside the Lighthouse, Sheringham.

Details of how to participate are on the website and if everyone enjoys it, the trustees will look to ways of obtaining funding to host further coffee mornings.

The music director and her small team of professional music tutors are the only paid members of the organisation and all other work is done voluntarily.

Funding comes from donations by the singers and grants as the singing workshops are ‘free at source’.
