Choir Leader’s Training Manual

The Scotland Sings Choir Leader’s Training Manual is here!!

Scotland Sings is Hands Up for Trad’s brand new project, designed to bring new SW globe_POS_StAndrews-p188ha2uatgsr1ie1kf9nj16h5participants and audiences together through singing. Scotland Sings was launched in Autumn 2012 with over 60 separate events taking place across Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s 2012 Winter Festival celebrations. We had over 3000 participants taking part from Stranraer to Lerwick.

Scotland Sings exists to encourage people to sing. Singing is so good for you and it makes you smile, with well documented health and social benefits gained from participating in regular singing activities. We are coordinating further singing projects in 2013 across Scotland and with additional plans for Scotland Sings to go International over the next 18 months, inspiring new participants to get involved in existing community choirs whilst also providing the support required to start a new choir where none currently exists…all people need is a voice! If you don’t want to join a choir we want to encourage you to get out sing on your own or with a band – anyway goes!

We’ve got lots of things going on. Check out our What’s On page for more information.

Here is a map of the events taking place over St Andrew’s Weekend for Scotland Sings!

If you would like to take part please contact us.

Our next big Scotland Sings weekend is 29th November – 1st December 2013!
We want to get as many people involved over these dates as possible.
Some ideas of ways to take part:

  • Put on a performance with your choir
  • Sing with your band
  • Sing with your friends
  • Sing in the street, your home, the park…….

Anything goes! If you are planning any singing over that weekend then we want to know about it so we can include you! If you are doing a performance with a group/choir, then it could double up as a fundraiser for charity, or for your group. If you have nowhere public to perform, why not invite friends round to your home and have a day of songs?
Please let us know about any singing you may be doing that weekend or the surrounding dates! If you have any questions then please contact us, we are more than happy to help!
