Live music

Music forms part of the social fabric of our lives. We all have a song or a favourite tune that reminds us of a special time or of a moment shared with someone else. Since 1948, MiHC has been privileged to contribute to and witness the magical moments that live music can bring to any kind of care setting.

We’ve learned that sharing the experience of a live musical performance can help reduce levels of anxiety, pain and depression, as well as break down social and cultural barriers.

As care staff frequently tell us, a live performance provides a focal point and an opportunity to participate in meaningful discussions after the event.
