OZ and Armonico's 200 Mile Bike Challenge!

Help us to bring the benefits of music to people living with dementia by supporting our cyclists!

Led by TV presenter, wine expert and singer Oz Clarke, Armonico’s intrepid group of cyclists will be back on the road again in September for their third epic ride.

This time they will be riding a 200-mile route from the Consort’s home in Warwick to the home of iconic British composer Benjamin Britten in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, to mark 60 years since the premiere of his masterpiece, the “War Requiem”, in Coventry Cathedral.

Their aim – to raise £10,000 to support our “Memory Singers” projects for people living with dementia and their carers.

Along the route, our musicians will be entertaining residents of care homes, bringing Armonico’s trademark mix of beautiful baroque music, inspiring rhythms and irreverent fun – even residents with advanced dementia can end up singing along, dancing and playing percussion.

We need your help to provide these opportunities for people living with dementia.

Your donation will support:

  • Our regular open-access “Memory Singers” sessions for people living with dementia and their carers in the community
  • Our projects in care homes where we provide participatory mini-concerts for residents
