Music in Hospitals & Care is passionate about the benefits of live music and its power to lift our spirits. We really see this in action at Christmastime, when the sounds of carols can get us into the spirit even during the most challenging of times.
We were delighted to hear in December that the Treblemakers, a London based acapella group including our musician Laura Stephenson (who you may know as the usual conductor for our open carol singing at Trafalgar Square), were taking to the streets for some socially distanced carolling to raise money and help share the healing power of live music.
Their beautiful voices serenaded people in their houses and the group’s festive outfits, including colourful fairy lights, added a bit of joy and sparkle to the dark, quiet streets. Sadly the change of restrictions in London meant they had to bring their carolling to an end, but Laura told us the performances had been a great hit and that many of the streets had asked them to make it an annual event!
We are so grateful for the generosity of the Treblemakers and everyone who has donated. You can still support them on their JustGiving page, where they have raised a fantastic £1,614 that will make a big difference to the lives of people in healthcare settings across the UK. Thank you for the music!
Please give today to help improve the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.
