“From Bingo to Bartok”

Creative and Innovative Approaches to involving older people with Orchestras


Friday 25 January

Today we are excited to be launching our new online publication, From Bingo to Bartok: Creative and Innovative Approaches to involving older people with Orchestras.

Commissioned by the Baring Foundation, the publication spotlights some of the best examples of orchestral work supporting older people living better lives and meeting the challenges of health and loneliness.

Introduced by the Rt Hon. The Lord Howarth of Newport CBE, Co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Arts, Health and Wellbeing, the publication features Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia, Manchester Camerata, Orchestras Live, Philharmonia and Sinfonia Viva and emerging practice from abroad.

It also contains a comprehensive list of current UK initiatives and an academic review of research and evaluation.
