Raising money for dementia: David Curtis of OOTS

David Curtis, the artistic director of the Orchestra of the Swan (OOTS), is putting on his running shoes and will be running the London Marathon on 23 April 2017, to raise funds to enable OOTS musicians to perform live music in Care Homes in Warwickshire and Worcestershire caring for those living with dementia.

OOTS musicians are trained by specialist music therapists Mindsong so that the dementia sessions offer the best experience possible. Sessions involve various combinations of instruments such as oboe and viola and include renditions of classical pieces, hymns, folk songs and plenty of well-known songs for people to join in with.

Hearing is often the last sense to be affected by dementia, so music becomes increasingly important to those living with this condition. The orchestra's commitment to work in this area has been a consistent part of its community engagement since 2009.

Please sponsor David to run the 26.2 miles to help OOTS ‘bring light to the dark world of dementia’ on their designated Virgin Money Giving page:
