Dalston Curve Garden

On Wednesday 12th July, Dalston Curve Garden hosted our Summer Party to mark the end of our Spitz Foundation project funded by The Arts Council and the launch of our film What would life be like without music?

While supporters, friends and family gathered, our musicians Ben Hazleton, Laurence Corns and Brian Edwards set the scene and enabled our older participants (all in their 90s) to feel at ease.

Thanks to all who attended and participated.

“Whatever the tempo of the music, the musicians were highly attuned to the pace, needs and personality of their older companion.  There was a gentle attentiveness that continued throughout each piece, with the musicians responding easily to pauses or changes as the song unfolded.  Sensitively they were able to follow or guide the tune to its natural ending, allowing the soloist to take their well-earned applause from families and guests.”   guest Sheila Christie
