Singing from Quarantine

Our wonderful Joyous Choir members have continued to sing together and support each other throughout the lockdown via WhatsApp and we are very pleased to be able to share this lovely video, made by MIN Volunteer Hadi Jafarizadeh, of them singing one of their favourite songs ‘Bella Ciao’ together ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽถ we hope you enjoy!

Big thanks to JMATrust for their ongoing support for the Choir, to Hadi for all his hard work in producing the video and to all our Joyous Choir members for taking part ๐Ÿ’œ

Sisters in Song

MIN’s Joyous Choir were the subject of this wonderful video made by students from the 2019 Documentary Production Course at the University of Stirling. We think the video gives great insight into the individual stories of members of the Choir and how being part of the Choir helps them to have a sense of belonging. You can catch the next Joyous Choir performance in Maryhill Park on Sunday 9th June at the Friends of Maryhill Park Summer Fair.
