Produced and recorded for HULL IS THIS, 19/03/2020
HULL IS THIS editor Jerome Whittingham chats with founder and leader of the All For One family of choirs, Helen Garnett.
Undeterred by what the coronavirus has thrown at them, the choirs and their members have taken themselves online, holding daily evening get-togethers to sing.
All For One has choirs in Beverley, Cleethorpes and Grimsby, Driffield, Hull, Sheffield, and Market Weighton.
The singers, numbering over 300 people across the family of choirs, are an active and supportive community that love each other’s company as much as they love to sing.
They were not going to be beaten by the current coronavirus crisis. Instead, they’ve embraced the opportunities that digital technology provides, and have been meeting virtually online for daily evening singing together.
