There are sure to be fireworks on the Lincoln music scene this month, as community music organisation soundLINCS continues to expand its New Tricks series of older adult music workshops across the City, with two brand new groups starting this month that you can experience for FREE.
Joining the existing Rhythm and Blues and Drumming groups in the City, there will now be new opportunities to join an All Abilities Singing Group at Oxfam Bookshop and to explore the beats and pulse of Samba, with a brand new group at Lincoln Minster School.
New Tricks is an exciting and inclusive programme, facilitated by soundLINCS to establish and sustain music-making groups across the county. There are opportunities in a huge variety of musical styles, from choral and orchestral to drumming and blues. All groups are free to try and will offer opportunities to share your skills with a wider audience, whether through live or digital performances.
All abilities are welcome and the programme is designed for those aged around 50+. Your first session of any group is always absolutely free to attend, with new groups holding several weeks of free initial taster sessions to help establish itself.
The expansion follows on from our successful New Tricks Silver Sunday Celebration on October 1st, where almost 100 members of existing groups and their families came together at the Terry O’Toole Theatre to celebrate United Nation’s Older Peoples’ Day and perform for each other. Some videos of these great performances can be seen at www.soundlincs.org
