Hats off (scarves on) to our Voice Squad workplace choirs at Coventry City Council and University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire for warming a very chilly evening at the Coventry Christmas Lights switch-on with their rousing singing.
Well done to two of our Voice Squad choirs Coventry City Council and UHCW University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire who brought some Christmas cheer to the Coventry Christmas Lights switch on last night.

In fact, it’s been a busy autumn for Voice Squad choirs.
In October, they sang with The King’s Singers (below) and AC Academy Choirs in the world premiere of A Suitcase Full of Songs by Toby Young.
In September, Voice Squad choirs took a starring role in BBC Music Day, performing in the city centre, live on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s Brody Swain show – Kevin even kindly wrote our script for us (thanks Kevin!), telling employers:
If you’re stressed at work, bring in this kind of initiative and it will improve your productivity
So what’s next for our office songbirds? In the coming weeks, Coventry City Council Voice Squad Choir performs at the Council’s annual Christmas Craft Fair (27 Nov) and in a Christmas sing-along at Friargate (12 Dec). Meanwhile the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Voice Squad sing to staff and visitors in the main hospital foyer (5 Dec) and both choirs join together to bring some Christmas cheer to a Coventry care home for residents with dementia.
Singing in a Voice Squad workplace choir is a wonderful way to relieve stress and improve mental well-being, it’s sociable and fun, and it brings colleagues from across the workforce together. Find out more here
