In & Out of Hospital – music project for people with hearing impairment

A fantastic start to a new year when, on Monday 14th January, we were joined by participants from all four of last summer’s music groups for people with hearing impairment.  Tom Sherman and Joe Harrison-Greaves once again ran an excellent session.

Participants got to know one another and joined in to play a number of instruments including a baby grand piano, two keyboards, a couple of bongos and drums, two guitars, a violin, an electric double bass, saxophone and flute.

We now have a number of riffs and melodies to work with in our next rehearsal on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March, just before our live public performance on the evening of 21st March.  This event will be held at BLOC projects on Eyre Lane. Further details will be posted nearer the time.

A big thanks to University of Sheffield’s Department of Music  for kindly offering us their beautiful rehearsal space.  And again to Sheffield Hospitals Charity and Arts Council England for funding this project.
