Happy April Fool's Day!
The pet choir is not real, but our community impact singing programmes are! While the Voices of Singapore Pet Choir was a fun project for April Fool's Day, we do have singing programmes that cater to often overlooked groups in our society.
Featuring our community impact singing programmes:
FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
There are two programmes under our Starlight Programmes. Starlight Voices is a choir comprising talents with special needs, while the Starlight Music-Making Programme is an inclusive music exploration class curated for children with special needs.
Both programmes are helmed by Ms Tham Pei Wen, who has a Master of Arts degree in Kodály Music Pedagogy, specialising in the adaptation of the Kodály approach for children with special needs.
Let's Sing! Programme
FOR THE VULNERABLE, AT-RISK & UNDERPRIVILEGED
Let's Sing! is a weekly choral and music programme for beneficiaries from organisations like the Children's Society who are vulnerable, at-risk or from underprivileged backgrounds.
The programme aims to help build up the confidence of the participants, allowing them to feel a sense of belonging and community through shared music making.
Silver Voices Programme
FOR SENIORS LIVING WITH & WITHOUT DEMENTIA
Silver Voices is an inclusive singing programme for seniors over 50. Extended to seniors living with or without dementia, the programme aims to improve cognitive functions and emotional and mental health through music. It also provides a safe social space for seniors to interact.
There are both English and Mandarin sessions available.
AND HELP US GIVE A VOICE TO THE VOICELESS
As an arts charity, Voices of Singapore aims to make singing accessible to people from all walks of life. Help us to bring the healing power of music to children with special needs, those who are vulnerable or at-risk, and to seniors living with and without dementia. Join us in empowering individuals in need.
