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. 

As restrictions have eased, we're now running a full schedule of sessions across the city: 


Barstow House Music Group Barstow House @ 10.30-11.45am

Acomb Singers Acomb Methodist Church @ 1.00-2.30pm

Glen Lodge Music Group Glen Lodge @ 1.15-2.30pm


Rolling Tones Tang Hall Community Centre @ 10.15-11.45am

This group is kindly supported by the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust - a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

Marjorie Waite Court Marjorie Waite Court - Sessions are held every other Tuesday @ 2pm


Honeysuckle Singers St Edward the Confessor Church @ 10.00-11.30am
