Young musicians take residents back in time

Residents, relatives and the care team at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham welcomed the Durham Young Musicians in for a very special performance.

The seven talented musicians performed a variety of music, ranging from jazz to classical with notable pieces by a number of composers. They also took a trip down memory lane into the era of the radio, by playing the theme tune of ‘Watch with Mother’.

Vera, a resident at Hallgarth, said: “It was so nice to meet and hear such talented children. It was so kind of them to give their Sunday afternoon up to come and perform for us. I really enjoyed it.

Betty, another resident, said: “They seemed to enjoy playing the music just as much as we enjoyed listening to it. Thank you.”
