Together in Sound: 15 July at 11am – Saffron Hall

15 July @ 11:00 - 14:00

Saffron Hall Trust and Anglia Ruskin University warmly invite you to join the spring sharing event of our joint music & dementia initiative, Together in Sound on 15 July 2022 at Saffron Hall. Please RSVP by Friday 1 July to togetherinsound@saffronhall.com or call 01799 588545.

Together in Sound music therapy groups aim to bring the power of music to those living with dementia. We focus on joint music-making and listening with a goal of supporting communication, relationships, and increasing quality of life through a collaborative group process. Saffron Hall and Cambridge Institute for Music Therapy Research at Anglia Ruskin University are pleased to be working in partnership to provide the opportunity for people living with dementia and their carers to attend a music therapy group.

With almost 2,000 people in Uttlesford predicted to have dementia by 2030, the care of dementia has never been more important. Together in Sound aims to support improved care for those with dementia and reduce isolation for their companions. This summer, 43 participants from across our community are attending weekly music therapy sessions, designed to bring people affected by dementia together. As an arts charity that champions inclusive music-making for all, Saffron Hall Trust is proud to be investing in this long-term initiative in our local community.

This session will be led by music therapist Dr Claire Flower and will celebrate the creativity of participants from across three groups, coming together to make and share music together. We are delighted to be joined by the Year 5 class from Great Chesterford Primary Academy who have been learning about dementia, and violinist Inês Delgado who is part of London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Foyle Future Firsts orchestral development scheme and has been collaborating with the groups this term.

You are invited to join participants and other guests for some light lunch after the session has finished.
