Turtle Song

An English Touring Opera, Royal College of Music and Turtle Key Arts collaboration, in partnership with The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and Wolverhampton University.

Turtle Song is an opportunity to compose and sing your own songs with professional musicians. It is for people with memory problems and all forms of dementia and for their companions (husbands/wives/carers). 

The Turtle Song group will meet for one session every Tuesday over a ten-week period between October and December 2016. The aims are to enjoy singing together, to help write some songs, to record the songs on CD and DVD, and to have a fun and inspiring experience.

"Turtle Song was a musical performance of pure wonder and fun, after weeks of collaboration, rehearsals, writing music, lyricising, tea drinking and luxury biscuit scoffing for people of varying ages all of whom suffer from dementia. It was beautiful, fun and enlivening. I was so touched by the effort and love that the organisers / founders of this event and the music students put into this performance."
