MEMORIES MADE WITH MUSIC
An intergenerational singing project
Thanks to a grant from Leeds Community Foundation through Helping Hand Fund, we ran a pilot project of intergenerational singing sessions in 3 different venues in Leeds to explore the successful running of intergenerational sessions in each venue.
The project launched in May 2019 at Kirkstall Abbey Visitor's Centre with a special session for Queen Victoria's 200th birthday! It was a great success and we loved seeing so many people of all ages singing together. We met with partners on the pilot project in December 2019 and all agreed it was a huge success!
Thanks to a grant from Youth Music, we are able to continue the sessions at Children's Centres around Leeds in 2020. We have put the sessions on hold at the moment due to the Covid restrictions, but we've been running a postcard correspondence project with some of the participants and we'll be sharing the responses on our social media soon!
