Well, we’ve only been and gone and done it again with Big Sing 2018 !!!
Big Sing 3 was bigger and better than ever with over 150 people packed into the Milton Rooms in Malton.
They came from all over Ryedale and over the Moors from Danby.
Wonderful uplifting songs from across the decades – a scrumptious afternoon tea – all locally made and sourced and marvellous company as always.
People told us that they had a wonderful time at our inland version of the seaside – we cannot wait for next year’s Big Sing 4.
See you there!
Musical Memories is a social enterprise providing fun social singing sessions for older people in rural communities in North Yorkshire.
A Musical Memories ‘Happy Hour’ is a fun, social singing sessions for older people in Yorkshire during which we sing together some of the best known songs of the 20th century. Everyone is provided with a songbook in large print for easy reading and the singing is accompanied by live piano and guitar.
We have always loved playing music and singing together and started Musical Memories in order to create social singing sessions in various locations to help bring older folk together for the simple pleasure of singing, talking, remembering and enjoying each others company – not to mention the cuppa and biscuits!
•Studies into singing sessions for older people have shown that singing together can boost levels of immunity, reduce stress, and improve mood and memory leading to a positive impact on overall health and well-being.
A Musical Memories ‘Happy Hour’ is the perfect opportunity to get together in a social setting, have a cuppa, reminisce, make new friends and sing!
