Songhaven is a free concert series specifically designed for people living with dementia or
memory loss and their carers. They will be hosting their next event on Saturday 11 March at 3:00pm, at the Lumen Church on Tavistock Place.
It’s called ‘Waltz of my Heart’, and wil be a dance-inspired programme by mezzo soprano and Bloomsbury resident Vivien Conacher, who will be joined by guest soprano Eleanor Ross and pianist Nigel Foster. The 40 minute concert programme will include waltz songs, tunes from the operetta stage, beloved operatic arias, and more. Composers featured include Richard Rogers, George Gershwin, Ivor Novello, Leonard Bernstein, Irving Berlin, Franz Lehár, and Jacques Offenbach.
As Vivien has told Marchmont Voice, “The event will provide a wonderful opportunity for audience and performers to mingle, and chat about their favourite songs. Everyone is free to be themselves at a Songhaven concert and we pride ourselves on our relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The response to the previous concert in February was just amazing”.
You can look forward as well to “an uplifting audience singalong, followed by afternoon tea” by Black Olive Cooks.
