The Rhythm of Life choir

Patients and staff members sing together to provide therapeutic benefits.

The Rhythm of Life choir sings to foster a sense of wellbeing and harmony. The choir sing in acapella style (with no music), performing songs from all over the world.

They use singing as therapy, as a means of forgetting about what’s going on, as a way of coming together in unity, feeling the joy from singing as well as all the added health benefits and to feel uplifted (especially when the going gets tough).

How to join the Rhythm of Life choir

Anyone affected by cancer is welcome to join the Rhythm of Life choir. The choir consists of staff, patients, friends and family. You don’t need any experience of singing in a choir to join.

The Rhythm of Life Choir meets every week on a Monday, alternating between 7.30pm in The Christie conservatory and 1pm at the Maggie’s Centre, Withington.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Ros Fox (staff member and organiser) on 0161 446 3996 or email
