"Music for Memory" Concert

 

Music for Memory Concert

 

Fundació ACE and the Castell de Peralada International Music Festival have recently started the “Music for memory” program to study how music influences the well-being of people with dementia.

The program, which will consist of a whole series of activities, grouped in 3 sessions per year, started last week with the organization of a workshop-concert of the Drinking Song (Brindisi) of La Traviata by the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi.

Thanks to this initiative, a grup of users of the Day Center and Hospital of the Foundation, after a long time of rehearsal and dedication, had the opportunity to become professional singers for a day, singing together with the members of the Intermezzo choir. Without a doubt it was a magical experience for all participants and attendees!
