Sing for Spring  is a community singing project for a great cause. Families, workplaces, schools, community groups, sports teams… everybody is welcome. A nursery rhyme, campfire sing-along, office karaoke… the sky’s the limit!

Communities that sing together can help beat loneliness and isolation, mental illness, cultural tension, unemployment and more. So let’s share the joy of song every day!
