We devise projects that harness the power of music to help individuals to live well, and recognise the value of people who might otherwise be invisible.

"Elderly people have little or no chance of live orchestral music and to help produce such an experience is truly uplifting." - care home staff member
Creative Journeys is part of a wider programme celebrating the creative contribution of older people in society. The orchestral strand of this work has helped to increase social interactions between participants and with their carers.
Hear and Now
"I’ve felt much more ‘not alone’ with memory loss." - participant
Hear and Now is an intergenerational project involving local communities across Bedford, including people living with dementia and their carers.
"From Bingo to Bartok"
In January 2019 we produced a publication "From Bingo to Bartok" with City of London Sinfonia, giving an overview of current activity within the sector for involving older people with orchestras.
