Orchestra of The Swan are delighted to announce that with generous funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust, The Swan will be starting a new and exciting weekly musical workshop, Café Muse, starting from Wednesday 4th August 2021, at the The Courtyard, Hereford, for Armed Forces veterans living with dementia.
It is a weekly opportunity for #ArmedForces veterans affected by #dementia (including carers and/or family members) to meet. It is intended to be fun, relaxed and friendly, with interactive music workshops.
Led and delivered by fully trained professional musicians, who are themselves veterans, music will come from many different genres and cultures, with music for everyone to enjoy, regardless of music preferences, incorporating pieces that are familiar, whilst encouraging conversation with the sharing of life experiences and stories from the past.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore the sounds of musical instruments; learn or rediscover a new musical skill; participate in composition & improvisation sessions to enjoy well known songs and music; create new friendships and social interactions.
