Our musicians have been speaking about some of the most significant moments they have experienced whilst sharing Joy Through Live Music with Music in Hospitals & Care.
Sarah Atter has been working with us in North England since 2008.
“For me, two concerts remain in my memory. In one concert a gentlemen showed no response until the very last piece, at which point he sat up straight and sang the entire song, word for word, in a clear and tuneful voice. The care staff were astonished – he hadn’t spoken for months. In another concert, a husband recognised his wife for the first time in a long time and they shared a beautiful and personal moment together. Both she and the staff there cried and she was incredibly grateful. I felt so privileged to witness this moment that the music had helped to happen.”
