Breathe


Listening to music is one of the easiest ways to enhance our well-being, so this season we’re bringing you some free, uplifting, one-hour sessions based on using music alongside mindfulness techniques and tools for finding calm, to let you take a moment and breathe. Join us to escape from the rigmarole of the daily grind and restrictions – hush your mind and restore your focus.

We’ve been working with the charity Maggie’s for several years, supporting and developing their brilliant work with people with cancer and their families by bringing live music into their centres. In these live online performances, we’ll combine our trademark music for strings with reflections from Maggie’s Lead Psychologist Lesley Howells on how we can all use music in our daily lives to help us feel better.

With the increase in pressure on everyone’s mental health, we could all do with taking some time out for ourselves. This special performance will help you to find new ways to listen and give you a taste of how to channel music to sweep away daily pressures.
