On 29th March the BUDDY Orchestra performed a Spring Concert at Bournemouth University.
The BUDDY Orchestra is community based music initiative set up in partnership with BU and local musicians. The Orchestra is made up of people living with dementia, their carers, family members, volunteers and professional musicians. They get together once a week to practice and this allows for the carers to chat with one another as well as providing a creative outlet for the dementia patients.
