Giving Voice


Leeds Waterfront Festival - I really enjoyed listening to this choir, Giving Voice, made up of adults with neurological conditions and their carers. The choir was started by Wendy Neill, a speech and language therapist. Apparently singing is very helpful for some people with speech, swallowing and breathing difficulties, as well as being a wonderful social activity and confidence booster.  They meet once a week in the Arts @ Trinity Centre, the former church beside the new Leeds Trinity Shopping centre.

  3. This is pretty interesting. I have read, for example, that some people with stammers don't stammer when singing. Bodies are remarkable things.
