We play for the residents on the viola da gambas (viols) and on the lutes with much concentration, by which such a rest comes that people feel confident.
After playing Leonoor goes to everyone individual with the small viola da gamba or the small lute and makes people feel that they, by relaxing their hand or arm,
can make beautiful tones. People who can hardly move anymore appear to be able to relax so much with help and much patience that they are able to
pluck or bow on the small viola da gamba (viol) or the small lute.
Beautiful stories come about what people experienced in their lives or they tell about their experiences with music. People really get happy of personal attention. At the end we sing the song Live together, sing together on the melody of Brother John.
Je bent nooit te oud om te leren (You are never too old to learn) is our last project, musical encounters in elderly people's homes in Utrecht, IJsselstein, Harmelen, Vleuten, Bilthoven and Amsterdam and music lessons for independent living seniors in the community center in our district Lombok, see the link above. This project took place from 19 December 2011 up to and including 1 November 2013.
For this project we received subsidy from:

Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie considered our music project for seniors as a pilot project. This means that extra attention was given to our project on the website of the foundation.
