Pitch up and Sing! this autumn
Pitch up and Sing! is a sociable singing group for those with memory loss or dementia, their families and friends.
The free sessions are funded by Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and delivered in partnership with Cornwall Music Services Trust (CMST). Pitch up and Sing! meet every Thursday during term time at Carleen Village Hall from 2pm-3.30pm.
To see the benefits of singing for people with dementia you only need to look at the viral video of Ted McDermott and his son singing in the car. Rachel Bennetts, singing leader will be running the new group and explains more.
“Singing together lifts our spirits and after we all feel more lively and energised and more alert.
“No singing experience is required. We’ll be singing a mix of songs from the 30s to the 60s to build up our confidence as well as learning new songs from around the world.”
After working up a thirst singers will be invited to socialise and make new friends over a refreshing cup of tea.
