The children at Naomi House enjoyed a special musical treat recently.
They were visited by Matthew Barley, a world-renowned cellist, who treated the children (and staff) to a very exclusive concert.
Matthew has performed in over 50 countries, including concertos with the BBC Philharmonic, London Sinfonietta, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Royal Scottish national and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.
Taking a break for an extensive tour of the UK, Matthew spent a few hours with the children, playing them the beautiful music of Benjamin Britten.
Music forms a very important part of daily life at both Naomi House and jacksplace.
Often, the children who stay at Naomi House have medical conditions that impact upon their ability to communicate. While they may not be able to communicate verbally, music therapy gives them the chance to express themselves, tell a story and let us know how they are feeling.
Music can be very soothing and provides a welcome distraction from everything else that may be going on.
Thanks to your support, we continue to make beautiful music at Naomi House and jacksplace, and it means the world to the children and young people who visit the hospices.
