Music for the Moment

Julian West - Posted on 29.08.2019

This year, BBC Music Day is celebrating the importance of music in improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. As part of this celebration, we invite you to join us for this Music for the Moment concert that is part of our ongoing concert series. These concerts are intended to be especially welcoming for people living with dementia, their family members and friends.

The Music for the Moment concert series is now in its sixth year and is organised in partnership with Westminster Arts, Wigmore Hall, St Marylebone Church and St Marylebone School. Each relaxed concert features students from the Royal Academy of Music that want to share their passion for music. These concerts aim to provide a safe environment to be present in the moment and to connect with other people. Audience members can meet musicians and socialise over a cup of tea and cake that is served by helpful volunteers from St Marylebone School.

'My husband has dementia and listening to music… is a joy we can share equally.' Music for the Moment audience member
