Lunchtime Sessions

Online Wellbeing Choir

- OnlineThursdays · 12pm · £3 (Free for UoB)

In light of the current public health situation, it feels more important than ever for our Wellbeing Classes to continue. You will be able to join our classes online from the comfort of your home using the Zoom app (free to download).

Attendees will be emailed the meeting link ahead of the class. We recommend arriving a few minutes before the session begins, to allow for a prompt start.

We’ve decided to open up our choir with Matt Finch for everyone to enjoy during these times.

 

This weekly choir is welcome to all levels and abilities and provides a space to learn a new song each lunchtime. Attendees can join one, a couple or all of the 45-minute sessions.

Each week tutor Matt Finch picks a new popular song, these have included a variety from ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘He Ain’t Heavy’, ‘Fields of Gold’, ‘Something Inside So Strong’, ‘Perfect Day’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’.

Continuing with our usual timetable, you will be able to join our online classes using the Zoom app (free to download) from the comfort of your home or office. You will need to download the app ahead of the 12 noon session.  If you would like to download a copy of the music on the morning of the session, simply select Bath University from the MyWorkChoir tab and enter the password singing.

These sessions are part of our Wellbeing Programme and look to improve morale, boost productivity and inspire creativity.

£3 (Free for UoB Staff & Students thanks to University funding)

Booking closes 30 minutes before the start of each class

Why Choir?

It’s been scientifically proven that singing in a choir is good for your health; from getting more oxygen into the blood, to increasing the flow of feel-good hormones and improving mental health.BBC

Why this Choir?

I felt really invigorated after this session. With a busy start to the semester, this was definitely the distraction I needed. I felt really great after 45 minutes of singing and I can back to work refreshed and happy. I loved it and will be recommending this to others to help with their own wellbeing. Staff member

I felt that it was a really positive experience and a great form of stress-relief in the middle of the day. It also offered the opportunity to mix with staff from across the university in a more fun, informal setting. I left each choir practice feeling happier and more relaxed – it is definitely something that I will continue doing in the future.Staff member
