Hitting the high notes on World Voice Day

TALENTED students sang out to mark World Voice Day which highlights the importance of looking after the voice.

More than 20 dance and musical theatre trainees from Rotherham College performed pieces in Rotherham Hospital’s foyer on Monday.

They joined speech and language therapists from The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to celebrate the voice and promote vocal health.

The students showcased their stuff by performing a whole host of pop songs and Motown classics.

Meanwhile, therapists provided patients and hospital visitors with advice and guidance on simple voice exercises.

Rachel Radford, clinical specialist speech and language therapist, said: “We can often take our voices for granted and it isn’t until the voice is affected that we realise how much we rely on it in everyday life.

“We wanted to celebrate World Voice Day by showcasing how powerful it can be, how people should look after it and what support is available for people with voice problems.”
