South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord is appealing for fresh musical talent.

The charity provides interactive musical experiences for people with dementia in care homes and day centres, and is looking for South Yorkshire based professional musicians to add to its list of performers who maintain the organisation’s services.

They will join a team of established musicians including soprano Deborah Norman and accordionist Luke Carver Goss, both of whom have been part of the Lost Chord services for years.

“Lost Chord allows you to develop your interactive skills in a very special way,” said the charity’s chief executive Helena Muller.

“It’s about connecting with people and putting music across for people to enjoy in any way they can, whether that be singing, playing percussion instruments or dancing – you can never tell what is going to happen when you walk into the room!

“That’s why we need musicians with a tremendous empathy for what we are doing – it can be a challenging job but it is always a rewarding and fulfilling one.”
