Thanks to a grant from Warwickshire County Council, we’re running weekly online singing sessions for Over 60s, vulnerable older people and those with dementia, this summer. They’re completely free and easy to access via YouTube.
Over 2,500 singers from our AC Academy projects will miss performing together at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 3 June but that’s not going to stop us singing! We’re creating our very own version of AC Academy Does the Royal Albert Hall – virtually – so we can all get together and sing our hearts out from our own living rooms.
In response to Coronavirus restrictions, at the end of March Armonico Consort’s founder and Artistic Director, Christopher Monks, outlined how we were adapting our work and moving our tried-and-tested singing workshops into the virtual world to enable us to support schools, children at home, care homes and those caring for dementia sufferers.
