Documentary ‘Singing for your life’
People who have the experience of cancer in common sing for each other!
Choirs from Oss, The Hague, Leeuwarden, Nijmegen, Arnhem and Wageningen and Amsterdam, which form the choir network of the Kanker in Beeld (Cancer in Images) Foundation sing for each other.
Let yourself be inspired by listening and watching- and possibly by singing yourself. On www.kankerinbeeld.nl you will find the list of addresses of all the choirs in the Netherlands.*
Choir members say this:
“Cancer plays a major role for all of us. Sometimes we talk about it, often we don’t. But it is very tangible when we sing. It gives all the songs a greater emotional charge”.
“Anyone can take part, even if you have no singing experience. Every voice and every input is fine, good enough as it is. We are a warm and friendly choir who support each other through thick and thin”.
Director and production: Marco Sweering & Jan Taal
* In Wales and England there is a similar project: Sing with us
