Bealtaine Hero recipient Suzanne Buttimer will run an event called MUSICAL MILESTONES with Bramleigh Nursing Home.
In her words: I would like to do a survey in a nursing home asking participants from musical milestones in their life- Happy birthday (did they have another version which perhaps a family member from a different country), Mothers lullabies, Wedding songs, Sports club anthems, Special Christmas Carols etc. They make a unique play list that would carry us through a life journey of musical milestone memories (that’s a LOT of M’s). Musicians from our school would enable this live, where the audience could sing or play along. If they were willing to share photographs of these life events too we could enable vision boards on the day of the event also as a backdrop to set the scene. Weather permitting this will be an open air gig that will add to the holistic experience. We wish to evoke precious memories and create nostalgia in a positive way. We look forward to the co-operation of this in our community to assist and make this special.
