Dementia Friendly Concerts For The Autumn

It is hard to believe that we only have a few days left of summer and that autumn is already staring at us. Don’t get desponded though, Dublin City Council has come up with yet another great idea to keep us going this autumn.

They have organised four concerts that will be held in the Ivy Room of the National Concert Hall – a series of Tea Dance Dementia Friendly Concerts. It is specially aimed at those who have dementia, their families and the people who take care of them.

“I congratulate Dublin City Council and the National Concert Hall for this autumn series of concerts. I encourage people to come along to enjoy a pleasant afternoon of favourite music in good company in the wonderful setting of the Concert Hall. I hope the concerts will be well supported and that this great initiative will continue, not just here but in other venues throughout the city,” Councillor Deirdre Heney said.

The first concert is taking place on the 3rd of August 2016 and will feature Liz Ryan on vocals accompanied by Andrew Synnott on piano. Brendan McQuaile will be there as a special quest and he will be performing songs from musicals, light opera and ballads.

Tickets will cost €2.50. The three other concerts take place on Monday the 15th of August, Monday the 19th of August and Monday the 2nd of December at 2 p.m. Details of all events are available on or you can phone on 01-417 0000.
