SING YOUR STORY
"Age does not define us, our voice can unlock the past and create the future."
Intergenerational Opera is a music outreach programme running in East Sussex bringing together Primary School children and elderly people from the community, including those with Dementia, through creative music workshops. The project will use music to develop communication and social interaction, boost confidence and creative expression and to generally improve overall wellbeing for all its participants. Each Intergenerational project will run in conjunction with the school term in weekly sessions. Relationships formed during the project are predicted to outlive the project.
Sessions are run by two professional opera singers and supported by a pianist. Music is learnt by ear and created by participants. The project culminates with a performance to which parents and carers are invited.
