“Community choir rocks with a musical treat at hospital”

Keep On Rockin' at Ipswich Hospital

They sung in the Buttermarket around Christmas. They sing in different care homes and community events each week or 2.

But one day, the group was asked to perform in Ipswich Hospital in the Dementia ward as part of Dementia Awareness Week. This meant they were singing more 1 to 1 than to a large crowd so it almost added pressure to their performance. But as soon as they saw the patience dancing in their beds and with a smile from ear to ear they started to get into their groove – filling half the hospital with music.

They even performed in the public canteen where they were met by a crowd of people. There was a lot of people who didn’t know why they were there, or why they were singing – but they still enjoyed the beautiful singing.
