Orchestra beams dementia concerts into care homesmain
The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has rolled out a series of ‘Cuppa Concerts’, intended for older people in care, with a special emphasis on dementia sufferers.
Cuppa Concerts have been programmed by CBSO musicians, who were trained in dementia awareness and have experience of working in care homes.
The first At Home programme will be a festive five-piece brass concert, performed by musicians from the CBSO.
In normal times, the CBSO presents dementia-friendly concerts in Symphony Hall.
