Wellbeing Workshops

Wellbeing workshops aim to bring the joy of live classical music directly to people in healthcare and other settings.

Overview

Wellbeing workshops aim to bring the joy of live classical music directly to people in healthcare and other settings. Small groups of Ulster Orchestra players introduce and perform a selection of pieces, and time is built into the workshop for refreshments and chatting. Workshops are delivered in partnership with umbrella agencies who help identify groups with limited access to musical provision

The patients enjoyed the experience of listening and recognizing the music and the interaction with the musicians. Some of our patients cannot verbalise and express how they feel, but I noticed the facial expressions and certain movements that this experience was beneficial… All the patients enjoyed the musicians coming in and playing for them. Everyone enjoyed the choice of music and the interaction. It was a positive and beneficial experience and we certainly would recommend these events.
