Introduction to Musical Connections
Musical Connections empowers people to lead happier, healthier lives through participating in music.
Musical Connections was first conceived in 2008, and became a registered charity in 2016. We offer a musical programme which challenges age-related stereotypes, and does not make assumptions about the types of music and activities that participants will enjoy and be able to access. We offer several different activities within the city of York:
- Weekly music groups open to members of the public, based in City of York Council sheltered housing schemes.
- Two weekly community choirs
- Weekly music groups in City of York Council residential homes
- Seasonal Big Sing events
- Regular partner work with local schools, colleges and universities reaching across the generations.
