Empowering people to lead happier, healthier lives through participating in music.

Welcome to Musical Connections

We run participatory music sessions and projects for older, isolated and vulnerable people in care and community settings across York. We also run a large programme of intergenerational events and activities, which bring together our beneficiaries with local schoolchildren and students. We provide free transport for anyone who needs it, and are supported by a team of dedicated volunteers.

We are hugely grateful to the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery, who recently granted us £15,000 to enable us to help more vulnerable older people in York to get involved in musical activities with their wider community.

Thank You For Being A Friend

You can watch all of our groups in action in our most recent collaborative recording we created with all of our groups & intergenerational partners, in our version of Thank You For Being A Friend! 'Thank You Day' was celebrated earlier in July with Music For Dementia, we put this together, to reflect the wonderful community of friends we've created amongst our MC family!

Musical Connections is a registered charity number 1165993.
