Over the past few years, IMM have worked with local authorities, housing associations, care providers and others to deliver contracted or commissioned projects, large and small.
Here are some recent examples of commissioned projects:
Making Musical Bridges
This was a 6-week intergenerational music project bringing together a group of Year 5 and 6 children with 15 local care home residents and local music students from the Academy of Music, Guildford. IMM worked with the residents, children and students from ACM over a six week period. At the end of the project the children and residents had composed their own song which was then recorded in a studio and videoed.
This project promoted learning, well-being, skill enhancement for the ACM students and interactions beyond all participants social sphere. The intervention also produced new musical outcomes for participants and met all of its aims and objectives.
It was a highly successful project that continues to develop.
Intergenerational Musical Productions
Jungle Jive and our Christmas Singalong have been the first in our series of Intergenerational music concerts for 3 months to 100+ at the Electric Theatre, Guildford.
Bringing generations together through fun and interactive concerts. A series of intergenerational concerts bringing together local schools, colleges and care homes in Surrey and beyond.
Making music with the children has been the highlight of my week. They give me energy and a purpose to get up in the morning. I so look forward to our music sessions and the singing just makes me so happy.
