Music in Care Homes project aims to bring 150 concerts to people in Wales - vote now to support the project

The Music in Hospitals organisation is seeking your support for a project to bring music to care homes across Wales.

The project has been nominated for the People's Project Awards 2016 which are funded by the Big Lottery Fund and ITV. It's up to the public vote for their favourite projects.

If selected, the 'Music in Care Homes' project will bring 150 therapeutic concerts to 4,000 people throughout Wales, including older people and those living with dementia.

Older people sometimes struggle with other activities organised for them but these concerts would mean that audiences can respond in whatever way they want: playing an instrument, singing along, tapping their feet, getting up and dancing – or just relaxing and listening to the music.
