01 May 2013: How to create a Dawn Chorus


Dawn Chorus is a community-based event in which active retirement groups come together with a local choir and sing in the early morning beside a waterfront location or a scenic place in their locality as part of the Bealtaine festival.

In 2013 Bealtaine hope to spread the event to communities in Europe and will develop a resource called 'How to create a Dawn Chorus'. This resource will artistically support communities participating in the Dawn Chorus choral phenomenon, and it will be developed in consultation with local and European partners from the Creating a New Old (CANO) network, which involves many arts organisations as well as age-focused organisations.
