Simon Capet, Koor’s founder said: “We’re thrilled to have partnered with Making Music in this way. We’re ambitious about working to connect choral singers around the world. Choral singing can build community, lower stress, improve mental health. In this time of fear and isolation, we want to create a global community that champions singing and helps people of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds and abilities discover the joy of singing in a choir.
“Making Music member groups promote and produce 23,000 events a year, to audiences of 1.5m, commissioning 400 new pieces of music and more. Working with Making Music we have a wonderful opportunity to reach these people and to share the work we’re doing in making choral singing easier, better and more fun for both singers and choral directors.”
