Aims of the Day 

The aim of the Symposium was to bridge the gap in musical provision for families affected by early-stage dementia. As musical skills can remain vibrant for some years after diagnosis, the symposium presenters demonstrated orchestral and vocal practice that enable people to re-engage in fulfilling musical life in the community.  

Leading music psychologists, orchestral and opera workshop leaders presented evidence to the symposium. The concluding conservatoire and concert hall panel will discuss ways to extend educational music programmes to involve music for early-stage dementia and maximize concert hall and opera house opportunities for families with dementia. 

Speakers outlined

  • Musicianship and ways to override memory issues for early-stage dementia
  • Orchestral practice - reviving and developing musical skills in early-stage dementia
  • Opera, Choral and combined arts practice
  • Conservatoire masters programmes in music and dementia, for portfolio careers
  • Concert hall opportunities for families with dementia - daytime concerts, dress rehearsals and discount tickets for carers
     

Invited to attend

Music educators, psychologists, neurologists, musicians, opera and concert hall managers and heads of learning, workshop leaders, memory and care service managers, families with a recent diagnosis of dementia, Admiral nurses, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, social service managers and GPs.
