Bringing LIVE Music To Hospitals
Sing’theatre’s mission is to support its community outreach programmess to bring music to underserved communities. Since 2013, Sing'theatre has brought live music to to patients, their families and caregivers in most of the SingHealth Institutions with several programs such as:
An annual whole-day festival of music for all by all that has happened annually until 2019.
- Weekly Concerts Programmes
These were held at National University Hospital and Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
- "365 days of Music@SingHealth”
365 Days of Music@SingHealth is a programme created and produced by Sing’theatre in collaboration with SingHealth. The program aims at bringing one hour of live music to one of the institutions of SingHealth group, every day, all year long.
- "365 days of Music@SingHealth" (Online)
Although COVID-19 has brought all activities in the hospitals to a halt, Sing’theatre has adapted to the situation and took live concerts online. Big screens were set up in hospitals to allow patients to enjoy concerts where they could interact with the performers and request the music they wanted to hear. Till today, this programme is still ongoing.
- Digital live performances in Hindi & Tamil
In July 2020, digital live performances in Hindi & Tamil were brought to migrant workers quarantined in dormitories at Singapore Expo.
[New] "Singing For Good"
To engage other communities who can benefit from the power of music, Sing’theatre is also working on a new program “Singing for Good” that aims at creating singing groups with underserved communities.
As singing has been proven to have many positive impacts on health, offering weekly group singing sessions to those communities makes so much sense for Sing'theatre!
