Songhaven at Lumen Church, Bloomsbury
Dementia Friendly Concert Series
Songhaven is committed to giving authentic and meaningful human connection to people living with dementia through the power of professional music performances.
London-based mezzo-soprano Vivien Conacher launched Songhaven in early 2017 to give people with dementia (and their carers and companions) the dignity of high-calibre professional concerts, in an atmosphere of kindness. At Songhaven, every effort is made to ensure that audience members feel comfortable, understood, and valued.
Everyone is free to be themselves at a Songhaven concert and we pride ourselves on our warm and relaxed atmosphere. Audience members are encouraged to respond to the music as they choose – singing along and moving to the music are welcomed and never viewed as disruptions.
