Talking in Tune is a small charity based in Cambridge. We create, support and promote singing and music making for everyone in our community. The charity exists because we know that singing has profound effects on individuals, on their physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being; on a larger scale it bonds communities that already exist and it can create new ones.
We create singing opportunities for the whole community:
• We organise community singing workshops, open to all, led by visiting musicians.
• We organise performances and events for the whole community. These show-case the talents of local musicians and many from far further afield.
• We organise and regularly participate in community wide events.
We also work for people with particular needs.
Music belongs to everybody and we try to remove any barriers that might prevent people participating. Over the past 10 years we have supported four specialist singing groups for people who could find it difficult to access the benefits and pleasures of singing: The Lifecraft Singers, Street Voices The Memory Notes and Singing for Breathing.
Talking in Tune was created by our Musical Director Rowena Whitehead and has had charitable status since 2004. We have a management group of trustees who work alongside a wonderful group of volunteers without whom none of our work would be possible.
