Concert On Your Doorstep

'It has brought us so much joy to be able to perform live to elderly and isolated folk during the pandemic. To be able to make a difference with our music is a real privilege'

Concert On Your Doorstep are two professional classical musicians with a passion for sharing the music they love to perform. Rebecca and Lucy play an astonishing range of music which they have specially arranged for two violins, including traditional folk, rock and roll, Latin American, music from the shows, classical favourites and even Abba, Dolly Parton and David Bowie. They regularly work at the Peggy Dodd Centre, Bath (Dementia Day Care), have been involved in Wiltshire Rural Music's 'Music On The Move' programme and perform regularly for Celebrating Age Wiltshire, an Arts Council funded initiative delivering arts events to elderly people in the community. Their musical adventures during the pandemic have been featured in The Guardian, Bath Chronicle and on Bath Radio.

During the COVID pandemic (and beyond!) they are performing socially distanced outdoor concerts for care homes, nursing homes, social/sheltered housing and private individuals. Since June 2020 they have performed 57 concerts, entertaining more than 600 isolated and vulnerable people. To perform all they need is an outdoor space big enough for them to socially distance to 2m from each other and their audience. Audiences often listen through windows, from doors, porches and balconies. They are able to bring their own 3m x 3m gazebo in case of bad weather, are fully risk assessed, compliant with government performing arts guidelines and have Public Liability Insurance.

'Their programme and delivery was simply superb' - Patrick, Bath

'The music was brilliant...lovely to see so many interacting' - Margaret, Pease Down St John.
