About the event

Live music for patients and staff by one of Live Music Now's outstanding young ensembles. Part of series of sessions which take place 5 dates each month in UCH spaces.

Visiting a hospital, whether you are seriously ill, having a routine check up or seeing a friend or relative, can be stressful and upsetting. A carefully chosen programme of live music can provide a soothing atmosphere in a busy hospital for everyone, including staff. For patients living with terminal or life-limiting conditions, a regular programme of interactive music sessions can have therapeutic benefits and enhance quality of life.

"What a great job I have, not only listening to such moving music, but seeing patients mesmerized, and so unusually calm. Your music must be activating our endorphins!... for many nurses and for myself if was a unique opportunity, as reflected by the buzz on the wards when I went by later." - Nurse

"My father kept shaking his head all afternoon as he recalled the power and clarity of your voice. You were able to distract him (and us) from his current troubles for that hour.'" - visiting relative

"The music was so powerful it made me feel hopeful for the future." - patient
