City of London Sinfonia

 

Award amount: £36,000

Project: L’Chaim, Living Music Programme

This grant is allowing the City of London Sinfonia to expand on their successful programme of free concerts to care homes in North London by offering more concerts and introducing a workshop element. Each visit involves a quartet of musicians who will perform an hour of music based on requests from residents and staff, which includes discussions about the music and its significance to the audience, rounded off with tea and cake.  The expansion to include a workshop element allows more interaction, encourages singing and music making opportunities and also allows conversations about the emotions/memories that the music evokes.
