13/12/2010 -Sophie launches the UK’s first Singers Support Group
Sophie talks openly about what led her to form the UK’s first Singers Support Group
"Going through the experience of a vocal operation was a very difficult and bewildering time for me. The recovery has been long and at times frustrating, with highs and lows along the way. During my week of silence straight after my op I obviously had many hours to ’think’ instead of speak. Having discovered there was no support for pre/post op singers there was clearly a great need for a group to be set up where singers could go to discuss their fears and anxieties with other singers going through the same vocal problems. Aided by the help of my vocal teacher and speech and language therapist together we have set up the support group VoxOp. It launches in January."
Any singers who are pre or post op and interested in attending the group should contact VoxOp for more info at the email below: firstname.lastname@example.org
