Singing workshop at Tynecastle High School

Dear parent/carer,

Singing workshop at Tynecastle High School, 3:30 – 4:30pm, 22nd May 2018

Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival

Come and join a singing workshop on Tuesday 22nd May 3.30-4.30pm at Tynecastle High School, in connection with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival. No singing or musical experience needed, everybody welcome!

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF, 7-27 May 2018) is an annual festival to raise awareness of mental health issues (and challenge preconceptions about mental health) through music, film, visual arts, dance, theatre and literature. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Beginnings’, and it is happening during Scotland’s 2018 ‘Year Of Young People’. Our singing workshop is free and open to everybody in the Tynecastle High School community: students, parents and carers, school staff, and also those in our cluster primary schools (Dalry, Balgreen, Stenhouse and Craiglockhart).

Singing will be led by Caro Overy, who joined us in February to lead a workshop during Children’s Mental Health Week. Caro is a choir leader, singer, and songwriter who enjoys sharing songs old and new from around the world to help people connect and have fun through singing.

With best wishes,
