Bringing music and orchestral activities into prisons and young offender institutions

Music and performance as a collective experience and new way of expression

Date: Monday 15th June 2015

Orchestras Live, in conjunction with Lemos&Crane, will be hosting a seminar on fostering engagement between orchestras and prisons and young offender institutions on 15 June 2015 in London from 12.30pm - 4pm.

Music can have a dramatic rehabilitative effect on offenders. This is often both therapeutic and remedial, providing a space and a context in which to express emotions, attitudes and fears and also a chance to overcome anxiety and receive positive feedback, but also developing and inculcating the skills of focus, attention, perseverance, listening and commitment required to succeed in a communal and collaborative project.

Performing music in a group is a collective positive experience. Goal orientated projects such as those culminating in a performance provide an important creative framework in which offenders come together and collaborate. The success of the outcome depends more on the group listening and responding to each other than it does on each individual performance. Participants also take collective responsibility for the outcome of the project leading to an increased sense of belonging and wellbeing.
