CONCERT TO RAISE FUNDS FOR MUSIC THERAPY IN DUNFERMLINE
Favourite tunes from Gershwin, Bernstein and Peter Maxwell Davies are the highlights of a concert being performed at fundraising concert at Dunfermline High School on Friday 17 March at 7pm.
The concert is being held by Fife’s Community Orchestra, the Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society, to raise funds for a new Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Clinic which is being planned for Dunfermline. The clinic will be in the heart of the town behind the Fire Station Creative and easily accessible for the people of West Fife.
Concert tickets are £8 for adults and £4 for children and can be bought on the door or from the Fire Station Creative, Carnegie Drive, Dunfermline open Tues-Saturday.
Nordoff Robbins Scotland is the only music therapy charity in Scotland and three of its Music Therapists will work at the new clinic. They will provide individual music therapy sessions for adults and children living with a range of health challenges including autism, cerebral palsy, learning disability and dementia.
If there is demand, the new space could also host music therapy sessions for small groups such as drumming, a small choir or sessions for carers and pre-school children. It will be available for the whole community and could provide music space for instrumental teachers and opportunities for sharing performance.
So far the charity is well on the way to reaching the target of £24,000 having secured over £18,000 from donors including the Dunfermline Carnegie Trust, Fife Council, ScotMid and Babock Engineering. It is aiming to raise the remaining £6000 by June.
