Striking up band for dementia care

Rob George 12th Apr, 2019

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 (April 17) from 1.30pm to 2.45pm.

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 2020, with a variety of music genres represented including Latin American, contemporary, classical and folk.

Jenny Davis, arts development officer at Wychavon, said: “We have had a great response from people who have attended our workshops over the years and I’m so excited for the upcoming year to begin.

“We have an entertaining programme planned with lots of talented musicians and singers. Workshops like this have a positive impact on people by reducing isolation, getting them involved and helping them to make new friends.”
