Musical Connections empowers people to lead happier, healthier lives through participating in music.

Musical Connections facilitates interactive music sessions in residential homes and sheltered accommodation schemes for vulnerable and socially isolated people, particularly older people and people living with dementia.  We are based in York and have existed since 2009.  We are currently funded by a Big Lottery grant and have secured Arts Council funding for next year. We run weekly sessions in many venues across York.

Please use the contact page to get in touch with us if you would like any information you cannot find on this website.  Our contact page is carefully monitored and you should hear from us within a day or two.


"Since its introduction, Musical Connections has had a positive influence on so many people's lives. It encourages occupation, positive feelings, and gives an opportunity for each individual to find a place that changes the moment."

Andrew Hart, when Manager of Windsor house.
