Musician Moments: Orpheus Leander

24th June 2020


Our musicians speak about some of the most significant moments they have experienced whilst sharing Joy Through Live Music with Music in Hospitals & Care.

Classical violinist Orpheus Leander has been working with us in South England since 2014.

“Some years ago I was giving a concert in London to a small audience of five or six residents in a lovely and very friendly care home. In the middle of the set I knelt to play Danny Boy to a lady who had been very involved in the concert, clapping and singing and chatting to us, a very positive and engaging lady. As I began to play Danny Boy a slow and strong stream of tears fell from her eyes. I was deeply moved by this and as I finished playing, the lady said how she remembered her mother and father singing this when she was a child.”
