GETNorth2018: Well Tuned
Sunday 8 July, 11am-7pm
Well Tuned is a celebration of the positive effects of music and wellbeing for over 50s. This event will showcase the depth of skills and experience of people over the age of 50 in the North of England.
This special event will feature a large-scale sing along, a mass percussion workshop and exhibitors presenting health and wellbeing information as well as a whole host of fun free performances. All groups are part of Sage Gateshead’s Silver Programme; a community music programme that aims to engage people over the age of 50 in fun and informative daytime sessions.
The day will showcase people over the age of 50 and emphasise the many benefits associated with group music making.
There will be performances from a huge array of groups playing an eclectic mix of genres, styles and instruments. The performances will highlight the amazing level of ability and skill amongst the participants.
It’s never too late to discover or rediscover a passion for music; a fact that is demonstrated by our Silver Programme participants.
