Music and workshops at No. 8

Evesham Editorial 15th Feb, 2019   0

THE SOUNDS of the Orchestra of the Swan will be on offer at the latest of Wychavon District Council’s musical performances for people living with dementia.

Members of Stratford’s classical orchestra will take to the stage at Pershore Number 8 on Wednesday from 1.30pm to 3pm.

Guests can find out about life as a professional musician or about favourite pieces of music, as well as share memories and thoughts about music.

The workshops have been running since 2014 and will continue to run until March 2019, with a variety of music genres represented including Latin American, contemporary, classical and folk.

Jenny Davis, arts development officer at Wychavon, said: “I’m delighted these workshops and all of our musicians have committed to such an entertaining programme. The feedback we’ve been receiving shows that the workshops have a very positive impact on people by reducing isolation, getting them involved and helping them to make new friends.”

Call the Number 8 Box Office on 01386 555488 or visit to book.
