Pudsey choristers shoot video for music and deaf charity

Recording: Voices of Yorkshire Choir have recorded a video for charity.

Pudsey choir members have hit the right note by recording a music video for a music and deaf charity, Sally Lawerence reports.

On Sunday, 14 April, on location at the Coniston Hotel in the Yorkshire Dales, the Voices of Yorkshire choir shot their first music video to raise money for Music and the Deaf.

Music producer Andy Thornton of Thornton Amplifiers recorded ‘Mountain’, and Dave of Lawal Footage videoed the choir singing in all the weather Yorkshire could muster!

“We spent the last few weeks learning to sign the chorus of the song under the instruction of our very own Wonder Woman,” said Vicki Gilbert,  who attends the Menston choir. Vicki will also appear in the video, signing the entire song.

Alongside the British Sign language, the video will also include subtitles so that it is as accessible as possible for anyone with deafness.

A choir spokesperson said: “As always our choir members did us proud and turned out in force to support this event, we had approximately 150 singers from aged 18 to 92 join us on the day, plus our very own Voices of Yorkshire bear! We’re so excited to see the final video and can’t wait to raise lots of money for our chosen charity Music and the Deaf, a charity very close to our hearts.”

Once our video is complete, it will be uploaded onto Spotify and all of the proceeds will go directly to Music And The Deaf. Spotify fees will be donated by Jo’s Bees.

Voices of Yorkshire is made up of six choirs in Skipton, Silsden, Bingley, Oakworth, Menston and Pudsey. They love to welcome new members, and you don’t have to be a professional singer to sign up.

The spokesperson added: “We don’t hold auditions, we just love to welcome new people who enjoy singing, having fun singing as well as raising money for charity is what we’re all about at Voices of Yorkshire!”
