Wellbeing Through Music

City of London Sinfonia (CLS) has been bringing music engagement into various healthcare settings for more than 30 years via its Wellbeing Through Music programme and continues to respond to a growing crisis in mental health.  Vulnerable and isolated people of all ages benefit from interactive exploration of music in hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, hospices and care homes, resulting in improved relationships, confidence, self-esteem and self expression, as well as greater responsiveness to clinical treatment.

With the support of its BBT Communities grant CLS will develop its Comfortable Classical series of relaxed performances where audiences, including those with autism, dementia and sensory impairments, can come and go as they wish and also engage in other relaxation activities during the concerts.
