LEADING South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord will celebrate Christmas with a special concert by some of its most popular professional musicians.
Lost Chord is the charity that provides vital interactive musical stimulation for people living with dementia in day centres and care homes both across the region and nationally and while the Care Sector is still in crisis public support really is needed to ensure Lost Chord survives into the future.
Some of the many professional musicians involved in the organisation’s year round programme of events will be playing at Carols for Lost Chord, the evening of Festive Favourites at All Saints Church in Laughten-en-le-Morthen, near Rotherham, on Thursday, December 13 at 7pm.
Among the musicians performing will be international flautist Clare Langan, sopranos Nicola Mills and Ella Taylor and pianists Helen Leek and Maria King, some of whom have taken time out of their professional performances on the leading cruise lines to be with Lost Chord on this special night, along with the young singers of the Sheffield High School Choir.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to hear our Lost Chord musicians doing what they do best,” said Lost Chord chief executive Helena Muller.
“All the money raised on the night will be going towards the funding of Lost Chord events across the region, ensuring that even more lives touched by dementia can discover the extraordinary therapeutic power of music – and that has to be the best Christmas gift of all.”
Tickets for the evening – which includes mince pies and mulled wine – cost £10 in advance or £12 on the door, with a £5 ticket for under 16s.
