Music is such a powerful tool to connect to past and present. It can evoke emotions, encourage memories, to connect people, and to bring joy. We wanted to find a way to bring music and singing to peoples homes at a time where people have not been able to meet up to sing together. Singing is inclusive, and everyone can sing!
We wanted to involve a wide range of ages and groups, including schools, churches, local families and organisations. Working with care facilities and the day centre we were particularly keen to engage with those who have been most isolated throughout this time, including people living with dementia and carers. This project is designed to bring community-wide benefits, to connect people and offer the gift of monthly entertainment.
