The Time to Shine Project has spent the summer working with service users from Seaview, a centre based in St Leonard’s in East Sussex who work with marginalised members within the local community. The ten week course was designed to prepare the service users for a CD recording and a public performance with a live professional band with the aim of improving their confidence levels, self-awareness, group engagement, self-respect and responsibility through weekly music sessions. Our course focused on improving vocal and musical technique, as well as developing the existing Seaview Choir, encouraging participants to try singing solo songs and working on confidence-building, self-awareness and performance techniques.
The Time to Shine Project also supported the Seaview Choir at their annual Christmas Carol Concert at St John the Evangelist, Brittany Road, St Leonard's on Sea on Saturday 10th December 2016. We are currently looking at funding options to continue our work with this fantastic organisation.
