MUSIC COMES OUT OF THE WIRELESS AND INTO AGED CARE AND RETIREMENT CENTRES AROUND SOUTH-EAST QUEENSLAND
Inspired by the 4MBS nostalgic radio program, backed by evidence-based research and grounded in Reminiscence Therapy principles, QMF’s Silver Memories harnessed the healing power of music.
Music ensembles from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University visited aged care and retirement centres across South-East Queensland for a series of live music performances exclusively for residents and their family and friends. This unique program, curated with guidance from Gary Thorpe, brought the radio show to life for a series of special jazz and classical music concerts to celebrate memories, and perhaps even make a few too.
Silver Memories was presented by Queensland Music Festival and Brisbane City Council.
