Care Home Residents Celebrate World Music Day

Dancing and singalongs were the order of the day at Austen House care home in Lower Earley, Reading where residents were keen to get involved in World Music Day on June 21st.

La Fete de la Musique was first celebrated in France in 1982 when amateur and professional musicians performed on the streets of Paris. Other countries adopted the same date to celebrate all different types of live music and the European Festival of Music soon became World Music Day as countries around the globe got on board.
Staff and residents at Austen House care home decided to hold a tea dance with live music performed by fantastic Gary, listening and singing to their favourite songs from yesterday.

Iuliana Buican the Activities Co-ordinator at Austen House commented: “Our residents love to dance, sing and listen to music, so World Music Day is a fantastic excuse for us to play our favourite songs, let our hair down and have a bit of a boogie.”

Joseph Patterson General Manager at the home, said: “Our residents have had a great day enjoying all different kinds of music. We have all been testing our music knowledge with our quiz which was so much fun, and then listening to our favourite songs and pieces of music – we have had all genres today, something for everyone!”
