Welcome to the ICU Liberty Singers. This is a pop up online choir, open to ICU staff across the NHS, giving critical care workers the opportunity to sing together this Chrstmas.
The choir is a collaboration between Kari Olsen-Porthouse (aka Liberty Singer) and Dr Alison Pittard, Dean of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
We had one hundred singers signed up within 48 hours of launching the project on Twitter, but you can still register to join the waiting list, by contacting Dr Alison Pittard.
We will rehearse online (via zoom) over four sessions, singing songs about togetherness and Christmas, ending with a virtual recording of one chosen song. Below is an snippet from recent work by Kari’s community choir – West Bridgford Liberty Singers (now the Online Liberty Singers).
Rights restrictions means that access to music and lyrics needs to be reserved for choir participants only.
You can access the lyrics files at the Singer Resource page. Please check the WhatsApp group for password details.
