Chamber members can take advantage of a SPECIAL DISCOUNT OF 10% OFF the regular cost of a half-day session.
The Voice Squad began as a 12-week pilot, supported by Coventry City of Culture Trust’s Great Place Scheme and Arts Council England, which saw choirs established at four of Coventry’s biggest employers: Coventry City Council, the University of Warwick, Coventry University and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire.
There is strong scientific evidence to show that singing helps reduce stress and improves mental well-being. Our research shows it boosts productivity too. Workplace choirs also bring staff together from across the business in a social and fun activity to help create a happier workforce and boost morale.
Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of Coventry City Council, agrees: “Nurturing a workforce that is both physically and mentally well and resilient is critical in this climate but is too often overlooked. Embracing the opportunity to free up your colleagues to engage in singing workshops and forming a choir, will not only improve their individual and collective sense of wellbeing; it will enhance productivity too.”
The new half-day Voice Squad workshops are fun and friendly, and absolutely no musical experience is needed. Sessions are led by one of Armonico Consort’s professional choir leaders with a rehearsal pianist and can be tailored for between 10 and 100 people at a time to suit you.
Singers involved in the pilot project said: “it has become the highlight of my week “, “it’s enabled me to meet others from around the University who I might never have met”, “the music never fails to make me smile, relax and forget the stresses and strains of work and life for a short while” and “the people in the office notice when the choir crew are back as we really help boost the energy levels in our office”.
