Artist Janet Wood is calling on Doncaster’s musical youth to create a new children’s choir to perform alongside others in a celebration of the region’s young voices.

Performers will be encouraged to spend time at Doncaster art gallery The Point where they will be asked to use works of art to help inspire them.

Janet said: “It will be a choir with a difference.

“We want young people to spend time in the gallery and use the visual art on display as inspiration for writing new songs and lyrics.

“This is a musical adventure driven by the young people themselves.

“The benefits of singing have been well documented. It’s a great way to express creativity and meet new friends. It’s also loads of fun and just makes you feel good!”

Free taster sessions will be held in the summer holidays for anyone aged 11 to 19 who wants to go along and give singing and songwriting a try.

Sessions will take place on July 31 from 2pm to 3pm and August 14 from 2pm to 3pm.
