This Sunday 14th April, Voices Across Time and the residents of Chacombe Park Care Home performed a world premiere of ‘The Hare and the Tortoise: The Musical’. This musical was been created over a 5 week period in weekly music workshops held at Chacombe Park by the residents alongside the Voices Across Time team. Featuring sea shanty’s to songs by Sinatra and inspired by one of Aesop’s most beloved fables, we welcomed friends, family and care staff to join us from 2:30 to be a part of this performance, ready for the show at 3:00 and then stay for tea and coffee after!
The effects of music on health and wellbeing created through joint music participation and musical nostalgia is something that is very important to the team at Voices Across Time. This is Voices Across Time’s second care home project and the increase in enjoyment, communication and energy levels of the residents each week has been remarkable and a pleasure to work with. As well as further care home musicals planned for this year, Christmas 2018 will see them tour through local and further afield care homes with their original Christmas production, ‘Christmas Across Time’….if you know of a care home that you believe would like to be part of any of this projects, then do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org!
