Healthy Harmonies was started in September 2014 by Sharon Dick.
We have held concerts and some small performances at key events such as the Staff Achievement Awards. We also performed to a sell out crowd at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (August 2016).
Healthy Harmonies is funded by Well at Work which looks to support initiatives that provides staff members with opportunities to achieve a better work/life balance.
The main objective of the ‘Healthy Harmonies’ is to promote positive well-being and self confidence through the medium of music and song.
Research shows that singing releases happy hormones which reduces stress levels and increases a sense of well-being.
Something quite magical and creative happens when we sing! As a group, we have to listen, breathe, rely upon and support each other towards the same goal - making a beautiful sound!
In doing this we form a common bond. Each and every person has a valuable contribution to make.
Knowing our efforts are valued, allows our confidence to grow, thus experiencing a sense of belonging and acceptance.
As we develop our singing skills, staff have the opportunity to forge new relationships with colleagues from the wider workforce which has benefits for the work place. Connections are made and there is a growing sense of appreciation towards the different roles within the service.
