The Royal Albert Hall Visits Local Care Home for Musical Extravaganza

Residents and guests at Chorleywood Beaumont care home in Chorleywood enjoyed a performance from “Albert’s Band” the Royal Albert Hall’s resident engagement ensemble. Albert’s Band performed medleys from their “Songbook Tour” and told tales about The Royal Albert Hall and some of the famous singers who had entertained there over the years. Their “Songbook” included songs by Fred Astaire, The Beetles, Shirley Bassey and Ella Fitzgerald.

Local nurse and Chorleywood resident Adeyinka Aroyyewun nominated Chorleywood Beaumont to receive a visit from Albert’s Band as part of their community outreach project. Adeyinka and her neighbour Lilian attended the event and joined in the singing, and clapped along as the band performed their finale song “We’ll meet again by Vera Lynn”.

General Manager, Ramona Stanciu said,
“Our residents and guests had a wonderful day singing along with the wonderful performers. We are very grateful to Adeyinka for the nomination. We do our best to provide a wide range of activities and entertainment at Chorleywood Beaumont as part of the lifestyle enrichment programme for residents, and this was one of our favourites!”

96 year old Maisie Riley, resident at Chorleywood Beaumont said
“I love music and I love to dance. The band played some of my favourite songs. The classics never go out of style!”
