St Albans Bach Choir - Carol concert support
This year, we were delighted to be chosen by the St Albans Bach Choir as one of the supported charities during their Carol concert. We are very grateful for their kind support.
We were invited to an evening performance on 12th December, by the St Albans Bach Choir, who were joined by the Embassy Brass. Our Project Assistant, Dimana Georgieva, spoke for a few minutes, sharing more details about the work that we do for people living with memory loss and dementia. The audience were invited to give donations to our charity after the concert.
The support was incredible, raising over £1,072 for Music for my Mind. We are very grateful for everyone’s generosity. The money raised will go towards reaching more people affected by memory loss or dementia and creating personalised playlists to improve their well-being and that of their families and carers.
We were treated to a wonderful performance of the choir, including of favourite carols such as ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’.
We want to thank the St Albans Bach Choir and the St Albans Cathedral once again, for choosing to support Music for my Mind and for everyone’s generous contributions and interest.

“A close member of my family was very ill in University College Hospital with leukopenic sepsis, having just moved from the Intensive Therapy Unit to a ward. He was very unresponsive when I went in to see him, seemed delirious and not able to converse sensibly…so I put on some Bach on the iPad. He immediately sat forward and started to discuss whether Bach was religious, told me his date of birth (correctly), and we then discussed how much we loved the music of Bach! A quite amazing transformation!”
