The Sidney De Haan Centre has teamed up with Canterbury Cantata Trust
, Live Music Now,
and the Natural Voice Network to gather information on how groups have used online platforms like Zoom to continue their work with long-term health conditions, such as COPD and Parkinson’s which render them especially vulnerable to the virus.
Professor Grenville Hancox, Creative Director of Canterbury Cantata Trust and the Sing to Beat Parkinson’s project, said: "The collection and analysis of information associated with different approaches to delivery will inform best practice, essential for practitioners going forward in these uncertain times.”
Musicians leading Singing for Health Groups and Community Choirs supporting the wellbeing of their members, can take part by completing the online questionnaire here.
The surveys will run from Monday 18 May for four weeks and a report on the findings will be available by early July.
