Make #MusicEveryDay part of your wellbeing routine with Music in Hospitals & Care

Every day we witness the difference live music can make. Now more than ever, everyone deserves to connect with #MusicEveryDay for the benefit of health and wellbeing.

It’s been so difficult to have had to press pause on our live music sessions in response to the current situation, but we have been heartened to see music continuing to offer shared experiences and connection.

Thanks to the support received to date from our Pause Play: COVID-19 emergency appeal, Arts Council England, Scottish Wellbeing FundCalleva Foundation and Moondance Foundation we have been able to create a programme of live stream sessions, including open concerts for everyone to access on our Facebook page and personalised sessions for specific groups on our YouTube channel. This is a rare opportunity to bring musicians from across the UK to people they couldn’t normally reach. People are always at the heart of what we do, but this year they will play a unique role in shaping the sessions with our musicians.

We are also connecting with and celebrating other organisations, consortiums, communities and people that recognise the benefits live music brings to health and wellbeing. Music used as part of a daily routine can help manage insomnia, anxiety, depressed mood, confusion and  improve memory.

As soon as it is safe to do so, we want to deliver our concerts in person to those whose lives are made better through live music. Music has a key part to play in our collective healing.

In these most difficult of times, and with your support, we want to play our part to share #JoyThroughLiveMusic.
