Editor’s letter

Hello and welcome to the first edition of SIING magazine! It has been quite an adventure to get to this point, following hot on the heels of the launch in Italy. We have a feast of articles for you from contributors in both Italy and the UK, giving a broad perspective from across Europe and some insights into post-covid group singing in Australia in Sally Martin-Brown’s article in our ‘Voiceworks’ section. I was personally fascinated to learn about the effects of obesity and weight loss in Franco Fussi’s article in ‘Science and Health.’

While there is a primary focus on singing, we felt it was important to also include spoken word with an offering from LGBT+ History month Poet Laureate, Adam Lowe. ‘Vada That,’ celebrates language, blending Polari with words of their own making.

Do head to the ‘Profiles’ section for a range of interviews with artists from across the world, with a special focus on our very own Cleveland Watkiss, MBE.

From SIING HQ we wish you a wonderful summer, gradually returning to some group singing in whatever capacity restrictions allow and looking forward to full freedom in raising our voices!

Enjoy your reading!
