Workplace Choirs


Our Workplace Choirs project started in September 2018 and has been growing strong- it allows companies to become involved in a workplace choir.  It is a strand of the Arts Office Music Development Programme and is part funded by the Arts Council.

This year has been challenging for the Choirs as they are unable to meet in person. As part of National Singing Week, supported by Sing Ireland, members of the DLR Sings Choir with conductor Elizabeth Hilliard have videoed part of their weekly rehearsal. The members have been meeting online over the Zoom platform since early September and are enjoying having the routine of the weekly sessions as something to look forward to. Group singing has been scientifically proven to lower stress, relieve anxiety, and elevate endorphins.
