Hitting the high notes for World Voice Day

World Voice Day 2018

The main entrance of Rotherham Hospital was filled with the voices of talented students earlier this week in recognition of World Voice Day on 16 April.

More than 20 musical theatre and dance students from Rotherham College’s joined Speech and Language Therapists from The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to raise awareness and celebrate the voice.

World Voice Day is an annual event which aims to highlight the importance of looking after your voice. A number of Speech and Language Therapists were on hand during the celebrations to provide patients and visitors to the hospital with advice and guidance on a range of simple voice exercises.

Rachel Radford, Clinical Specialist Speech and Language Therapist at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, 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.”

The students from Rotherham College helped demonstrate voice exercises as well as performing a number of songs including Oh Happy Days, Katy Perry’s Roar and a host of Motown classics.
