Take some time out for yourself and join us to sing choral favourites, songs from the shows and pop classics. Make new friends, or bring someone along with you. Join like-minded people and try something new, in a relaxed and supportive environment.
During the Covid-19 Lockdown of 2020, the Derby and Derbyshire Sing Viva Carer's choirs combined and have been meeting on Zoom. We have been learning new songs and having a great time doing so. Meeting as a choir really lifts the spirits of everyone attending each week and in May we decided to record one of the pieces we have been learning. Because of the delay in Zoom we have been rehearsing with everyone (apart from the pianist) muted so we have been singing to ourselves, not hearing all the rest of the parts. It was so nice hearing this song for the first time as a whole choir via this video.
Lean On Me Words and Music by Bill Withers This arrangement by Adam Anders & Tim Davis additional instrumentals improvised by Sinfonia Viva musicians.
Sing Viva conductors: Caroline Swaby (Derby Sing Viva) Peter Lack (Derbyshire Sing Viva) David Lawrence (Sinfonia Viva Choral Advisor)
