‘Music for Life’ is a project that has pioneered and developed interactive, creative music workshop programmes for people living with dementia. The project aims both to enhance the quality of life of its participants and to demonstrate to care staff the emotional, social and physical potential of people in their care. Its focus is on people who can be isolated and disempowered as a result of their dementia. Music for Life was founded in 1993 by Linda Rose and has been developed in association with Jewish Care and a growing team of musicians. Music for Life is now managed by Wigmore Hall in partnership with Dementia UK.
Proceeds from this concert will go to Music for Life (Wigmore Hall and Dementia UK), Wigmore Hall Registered Charity Number 1024838
