One song. Hundreds of voices. Three choir sections. Two hours to practice. One chance to sing. Live. Together. In harmony. Perfection. Recorded. On Youtube.
This was the intent of Sing Sing Sing. Inspired by Choir Choir Choir we set out to create a truly memorable and spectacular community event in support of Suicide Prevention.
We collaborated with Downtown Tauranga, Mauao Performing Arts Centre, The Breeze 95.8fm, Weekend Sun and Baycourt Theatre. As the event organisers we designed, created, promoted and delivered Sing Sing Sing at Baycourt Theatre in Downtown Tauranga - a beautifully moving community initiative.
On the 19 November the community came together to sing in support of suicide prevention. What resulted was a beautiful, moving, memorable experience - hundreds of people singing side by side in harmony to an iconic song.
Surprise guest star lead vocalist Ria Hall joined the choir in this special performance which was filmed by BOP Film and broadcasted live on Youtube!
All proceeds went to the amazing and vital Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust.
"There is nothing quite like singing in a group to bring people together and lift the spirits. Research suggests that group singing triggers the release of “happy” hormones. We all know we can certainly do with more happiness in our lives." Emily Macklow
