Our new Outreach project called 'Cuppa Concerts' provides 30-minute concerts followed by a 'cuppa' at your home. You can choose the style, repertoire, instruments/singers you would like, or be surprised by discovering new music.
We especially want to reach out to isolated and lonely people who would benefit from visits at home such as the elderly and people with physical or mental health issues. We have received a grant from 'Signomatic' enabling us to provide a limited number of concerts for free to those who otherwise would not be able to afford them. Otherwise, the cost of a concert is £40 (for one musician) which includes £5 towards funding other free concerts at home. Donations of top of that will enable us to provide more free concerts.
At some point in 2020, we will have a 'sharing concert' which, as well as a performance by the orchestra would involve people we have visited, taking part creatively (musical performance, poetry reading etc.) if they wish, or being in the audience. This would be an opportunity for people to meet others through a shared moment of music and refreshments.
