Join the Warwick Memory Singers and experience the power of music

Music is incredible.  It has the power to help overcome isolation, reduce stress, make you feel happier and offer a host of other mental and physical well-being benefits.  Plus, it’s huge fun!

Armonico Consort has long been a believer in music as ‘human medicine’, and the recent Power of Music report reinforces just how much music can positively affect lives, and achieve improved health and care outcomes in people living with dementia, depression and other debilitating conditions.  It has a number of recommendations to significantly improve what’s become known as ‘social prescribing’ of music.

Through our community choirs in care homes, Armonico has seen first hand the benefits of singing together, from reducing isolation to unlocking memories in people living with dementia.

Join the Warwick Memory Singers

Last year, in association with the Alzheimer’s Society, we set up the Warwick Memory Singers, Armonico Consort’s first choir for people living with dementia and their carers.

The sessions include fun warm ups, activity songs and a wide variety of familiar tunes, plus a chance to socialise over some delicious cakes and tea!

My Mum loves it!  Lives for it!  Highlight of her week.  At a time of life when everything is very confusing, it’s comforting to return to familiar songs

The demand has been so great that we’ve already outgrown our first venue and have moved to a larger hall.  We meet weekly to sing together in an informal and stimulating environment that is always open to new people.

Brian and I have been coming to Warwick Memory Singers since they started and we absolutely love it.  Everyone is so friendly and singing is a great benefit to us both, it lifts our spirits.”

Really friendly people and cakes are really good!

Sessions are at 1pm on Wednesdays at All Saints Church, Vicarage Fields, Warwick, CV34 5NL.
