We’re thrilled to launch Unlocking Baroque Memories – live music therapy, tailor-made for dementia sufferers, brought to you by Armonico Consort’s specialist baroque musicians and guest artists.
As part of our Virtual Royal Albert Hall Festival Week next week we’ll be hosting twice-daily Sing with Simon workshops, devised with the Over 60s in mind.
Never one to shy away from a crafty pint, our Artistic Director Christopher Monks has rounded up some of the wonderful world class artists Armonico Consort frequently works with and chats to them over a beer (or beverage of their choice).
Over 2,500 singers from our AC Academy projects will miss performing together at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday 3 June but that’s not going to stop us singing! We’re creating our very own version of AC Academy Does the Royal Albert Hall – virtually – so we can all get together and sing our hearts out from our own living rooms.
Mental Health Awareness Week is a great opportunity to remind ourselves of the extraordinary ability of music to benefit our mental and physical well-being. From reducing stress among employees and improving self-esteem in young people, adding to the quality of life for care home residents to reducing anxiety and depression amongst people with dementia, it’s official SINGING IS GOOD FOR YOU!
In response to Coronavirus restrictions, at the end of March Armonico Consort’s founder and Artistic Director, Christopher Monks, outlined how we were adapting our work and moving our tried-and-tested singing workshops into the virtual world to enable us to support schools, children at home, care homes and those caring for dementia sufferers.
