Description

World Premiere Performance – The Singing Hospital

To coincide with the exhibition ‘Catch your Breath’, the RCP Museum have partnered with the Singing for Breathing groups at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, the longest continually running workshop for people with chronic respiratory conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The choir will premiere a new participatory composition The Singing Hospital by composer Victoria Hume, commissioned by rb&hArts, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals' Arts Programme and supported by Arts Council England.

Singing for Breathing workshops support adults with COPD, an incurable respiratory condition which makes breathing difficult but can be better managed through singing.

Free to attend but booking required.
