Patients, staff and visitors to our Hub at St Andrew's Hospice were treated to two musical master classes recently.

On Friday 15 September, local act ME3 played a set of popular jazz standards over the lunchtime period.

The band, consisting of Gemma Newman (vocals), Matthew Jeffrey (piano/vocals) and Mike Wood (saxophone), are new to the scene are were actually making their live debut at St Andrew's Hospice.

Gemma said: "It was a great first gig for the band and we have had some lovely feedback form the audience.

"We really enjoyed playing at St Andrew's Hospice and we hope we can be back there soon."

A week later, on Friday 22 September, Mister Music Rob Humphrey entertained our audience with an interactive music session that allowed staff and patients to join in.

Rob (left) performed many well-known tunes on keyboards and vocals, with staff and patients from both our adult and children's units joining in on percussion or in song.

 

The performance certainly lived up to Rob's billing of 'singing your way to a healthier, happier you'.

Susan Ney, Therapeutic Activities Assistant at St Andrew's Hospice thanked both acts for their performances.

She said: "We would like to thank ME3 and Mister Music for coming to entertain us.

"They both provided lots of enjoyment for our staff and patients and it was great to see so many people singing along."
