Event Description

Three Peaks,   Three Choirs,   One Voice,   One Mind!

150 singers are participating in climbing the 3 Peaks - Ben Nevis, Scarfell and Snowdon.... some physically and some virtually (à la Captain Tom), singing at the summits to raise their voices and money for "Mind" and other choir charities.  

Helen Swift (MD) and Jonathan French (pianist) are leading the challenge, climbing Ben Nevis (4,413 feet) and Scarfell Pike (3,210 feet) on 25th/26th September, and Snowdon (3,560 feet) on 11th October with a keyboard to sing at the top!!  Hundreds of singers are joining to walk the 22,110 steps either in person or virtually in their homes, villages and towns.

The Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir, Towcester Choral Society and Thame Choral Society are all combining with one common goal to raise their voices and funds to support the mental health charity "Mind" and their choirs.

Covid 19 has devastated the musical communities that once thrived in our country. Many singers have been isolated in their homes since March and are still shielding.  They have not been able to leave the house in six months!! Singing together for so many of us is so much more than a hobby, it's a lifeline, a community, a family.  Singing with others balances our mental and physical health and coronavirus is destroying our choirs and communities that have been built up over 100 years.  

Our mental health is paramount and now, more than ever, we can see the importance of its silent voice that can enable and unravel.  Singing is a lifeline for our mental health.  We want to support the mental health charity Mind and also our singers, many of who are singing online, coping with months of isolation, trying to find ways to come together and support them during this pandemic. 

 

Thank you for reading, we value your support so much. x

Wish I could be there in person, having previously cycled down to Penarth with Helen and 20 of the OWMVC Choristers. I’ll be there in spirit if not in body, as I’ll be climbing the stairs as many times as it takes, until I’ve at least completed Snowdon!

Wonderful antidote to a challenging year, which has taken its toll on so many, both physically and mentally. So it’s very apt that the proceeds will go to Mind.
