Bath’s Mayor, Cllr June Player, has agreed to become Patron of Voices for Life, a Bath and Wiltshire based children’s singing and wellbeing charity.
Voices for Life was founded during the pandemic by Shean Bowers and Tessa Armstrong to inspire children to be happy and confident through music and singing.
The charity officially launched in February with the release of an online video introduced by world renowned conductor and composer, John Rutter.
The aim of the charity is to enable primary school children to be the best they can be at school by providing them with fun opportunities to express themselves through music, singing and confidence coaching, building their self-esteem and confidence.
Peter Martin, Chair of Trustees of Voices for Life, said of the appointment “It is great to have the support of The Mayor of Bath and we look forward to growing the charity to enable us to reach and help as many children as possible.”
Voices for Life is currently running a post-lockdown project for 250 local primary school children to help transition them through the pandemic. Weekly workshops are taking place in preparation for the premiere of ‘Stardust’, an oratorio written for the charity by composer, Jools Scott, and librettist, Sue Curtis. The performances are taking place on 14th and 15th October 2021 in Bath Abbey, accompanied by The Bristol Ensemble.
The Voices for Life projects are carefully created to provide children with a renewed sense of confidence in themselves as well as memorable experiences.
