Event description
FREE ENTRY "Music For All @ New Laigh Kirk" Kilmarnock. Gala concert - Kate Valentine & The Aeolian Choir. Donations to "Playlist For Life"

About this Event

When listening to music, the brain lights up like a firework display: if parts are damaged, the music can still reach them. Music can bring back feelings, memories and sometimes even abilities thought lost: it can manage mood and emotions; reconnect families and foster new connections. This evening’s much-anticipated event features wonderful musicians, in support of this musical therapy.

In this gala concert we are thrilled to welcome home the international and widely acclaimed soprano, Kate Valentine, whose career has blossomed since her debut with Scottish Opera and we are delighted to play host to the renowned Aeolian Choir, under the direction of Mr Alec Ferguson, who’ll sing music from their wide repertoire to rekindle memories; take us down memory lane and allow us to wallow in nostalgia.

Playlist for Life is the UK's leading music and dementia charity. They want everyone with dementia to have a unique, personal playlist with the soundtrack of their life to keep them connected with themselves and their loved ones. Come along and enjoy the musical memories! Entrance is free but charity donations welcome: Playlist For Life.
