LMP Reach: free on-line recitals for vulnerable groups

Live music for those in vulnerable communities is something which organisations have had to put on hold since the current crisis. To fill this gap, the London Mozart Players (LMP) has created LMP Reach, a community initiative that takes music, digitally, into these spaces. 

Members of the orchestra are filming a series of recitals specifically curated to entertain those living in care homes or at home with carers, those living with dementia, or people in vulnerable groups who may not otherwise have access to community concerts and events. Music enhances the emotional well-being and quality of life of people living and working in care homes, and LMP is delighted to play its part in bringing some joy into communities that have suffered during the pandemic.

Each LMP Reach recital is 30 minutes of music performed by two members of LMP, with everything from Wartime favourites and musical theatre to popular classics. The recitals are free to watch via a passworded link in Vimeo, and access is being offered to care homes, hubs, and centres across the borough of Croydon and further afield.
