Our Stories

“I’d forgotten how much I love music. It takes you away from everyday life and brings you into a completely new world. It uplifted my emotions and put a smile on my face.”
Keshia, parent carer and member of Lifted Carers Centre, Wythenshawe

From the Scottish Highlands to the Channel Islands, from Northern Ireland to the Welsh Valleys, our professional musicians share live music with people of all ages. This includes everyone from premature babies in hospitals, to people living with dementia in care homes.

I’d forgotten how much I love music. It takes you away from everyday life and brings you into a completely new world. It uplifted my emotions and put a smile on my face.

Haslemere: Marilyn's story

Marilyn had an accident which left her with brain damage. But when there’s good live music going on, she reacts to it. She is more awake and it makes a big difference to her wellbeing.

Bridgend: Alan's story

The music has been as helpful to me as my medication.
