Welcome from john
I’m so excited for the next year of Contemporary Choir as we welcome our old and new members! Like the rest of committee, I will be present at Choir’s online and in-person events so feel free to say hello if you have any questions, suggestions for outreach projects or just fancy a chat!
Part of my role as outreach is to connect with communities within and outside of the university. Before, we have run musical sessions at a primary school and performed public concerts at the city’s churches, as well as busked in the street. I am keen to build on these activities, as well as collaborate with other music and performance societies to expand our members’ experience.
Choir places a strong emphasis on members’ wellbeing. Alongside the wellbeing officers present at socials, we also provide our members with wellbeing cards which signpost available support services. We are also implementing an opt-in “Buddy” system. This will create mixed groups of old and new members to help everyone get to know each other and meet people from across the university.
