About this event




Everyone can sing! You might not think you have a good voice, or you might have been told you can’t sing, but David and Veronica are on a mission to convince you otherwise!

Join them for lots of fun vocal warm-ups, silly (and not so silly) songs, as well as discussing the benefits of singing for wellbeing. All participants will be on mute, so feel free to sing like no-one’s watching!


David Munn was born in Glasgow and attended the Music School of Douglas Academy before going on to study Music at the University of Glasgow, University of Illinois and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS). He now works alongside Veronica as a Senior Musician at Big Noise in Stirling, as well as tutoring for the Benedetti Foundation, RCS Junior Conservatoire and National Schools Symphony Orchestra.

Verónica Urrego is from Venezuela and studied violin at El Sistema music programme, where she obtained her Bachelor in Music. She now lives in the UK where she works at Sistema Scotland as an upper string tutor and conductor at the Big Noise centre in Raploch. Additionally, she regularly works with National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain and Benedetti Foundation and has recently completed a Master's Degree in Learning and Teaching in the Performing Arts at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.


The aim behind ‘A Discovery of Voice’ is to create a FREE interactive series of events incorporating a discovery of voice and emotions through music that focuses on promoting understandings of mental health, emotions, relationships, communication and nurturing a more confident society through expressions such as music and music therapy.

Using music as a platform to de-exceptionalise our understandings of ‘conflict’ by using an everyday perspective to help boost confidence in individuals and help them hear and better understand their own voice, which in turn can deescalate conflict and improve relationships. The events will help promote an understanding of our emotions and way of coping, managing and communicating them to those around us.

Join our FREE online opening event 'Symphony of Stories' on 17th June 18:00-20:00 and our closing concert on the 19th June 18:00-19:30. These events can be booked on the SCCR Events page.

This event will be delivered on the online platform Zoom. If you book on to the event you will be sent the details via email on how to join nearer the time to the event when bookings have closed.

Please note Zoom offers video capability so you can join with your webcam on, but this is entirely up to you and this option can be turned off. However we would love to see your faces and feel it is a more interactive experience with videos on.

We hope to see you online soon!
