I found the Red Rosettes when I was out with my daughter at a local event, she wanted her face painted so we went inside. As we waited in the queue some lovely songs were coming from the stage. The ladies were clearly enjoying themselves as I watched them perform. I noticed that they were not all singing up in the rafters like I had heard from church and choral choirs. Some of the ladies were singing lower notes! I had been singing along to my favorite songs for years but not in public. I was invited to come and see them practice and found the ladies to be very helpful and welcoming. Through weekly practice my singing is better, my confidence has grown, my health is better and my mood is lifted. Learning and performing songs is great to keep your body and brain active whatever your age. I enjoy every time we sing and love the sound we create together.
