Music Brings Joy to Care Homes
Despite lockdown and restrictions on live performances, music at Davenies continues to thrive as boys have taken to the virtual stage to perform.
Combining their efforts, boys from Year 1–8 created a virtual concert for the residents of Leonard Cheshire Care Home. Music from all styles and periods performed on piano, violin, cello, French horn and a range of voices will delight and entertain the residents. Additionally, as part on an ongoing tradition of classical concerts at Sunrise Care Home, 13 Davenies boys joined with other local children to create an hour-long concert. Performers aged between 5 and 15 years of age presented music of all styles from traditional and jazz to classical, performing on piano, violin, horn, euphonium, trombone, trumpet, drums, cello, flute and voice. After a year and a half of concerts for Sunrise Care Home, this concert was also shared virtually with Bradbury House and Bury Lodge Care Homes.
The children’s sheer enthusiasm for music and the joy of sharing it with the audiences is wonderfully inspiring and it hoped both virtual concerts will ease the isolation for the care home residents and bring the community closer together.
