Thank you frontline workers - let's sing it loud!

The rainbows still smile from windows across the land, and we have clapped out our gratitude. Now, let’s sing a huge thank you to all frontline workers.

Join us with our original reworking of Mozart’s Là Ci Darem. This is opera for our times, written to thank frontline workers in as many languages as we could squeeze into one song.

As the NHS prepares to celebrate its 72nd anniversary on Sunday 5th July, join us to sing thank you to frontline workers. Sing from your balconies, your front gardens, or open windows. Just sing it – and sing it loud!

At Health:Pitch we know first hand how vital frontline workers are. Wherever our singers perform, in care homes, hospitals, hospices, supported housing and community centres, they see the unwavering dedication of staff and family members.

“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed that’s all who ever have.” Margaret Mead

American cultural anthropologist (1901 – 1978)

To care for others can be a calling. To care for others can also be a challenge. Nevermore so than during a global pandemic such as COVID-19. So we sing our thanks out loud.

Two of the Health:Pitch singers, Francesca Lanza and Tom McVeigh have recorded a digital duet with a difference from their homes in Italy and the UK. This new version of Mozart’s Là Ci darem, written by the award-winning Dr Helen Eastman, is our Health:Pitch thank you to frontline workers who face risk to keep us safe, and who continue to care daily and nightly.

“Teams of people in their crews: nurses, doctors, cleaners, caterers, ambulance drivers, physios (and more) made huge efforts to keep me alive – along with many others at the same time.”

Michael Rosen

British Author, speaking after spending 47 days in ICU this spring. Michael Rosen wrote the poem These are the Hands for the 60th anniversary of the NHS.

Thank you, Grazie, Gracias, Dank u, efkaristo, xiexie… Where will you sing your thanks out loud?

The Health:Pitch team’s ‘Thank You’ song is a taster of more opera joy to come in The Soprano, an original music theatre production, also written by Dr Helen Eastman.

Join us on Saturday 4th July at 3pm on our YouTube channel for episode 6 to enjoy Francesca and Tom’s virtual audition duet.

All previous episodes of The Soprano are still available to watch on our YouTube channel. Please get in touch if you would like help to share The Soprano with those in your care. We are always happy to help.
