The Forget-Me-Nots choir for older people, people with dementia and memory loss, their families and carers was co-founded by Music Matters’ director Gráinne O’ Grady and Orla Horn, project manager.
This choir now runs independently at a local community level very successfully. This choir is directed by Norah Walsh and managed by Orla Horn. For details, check out their website, Forget Me Nots Website
This choir was established with the help and support of the Arts Department of Fingal County Council, the HSE and KBC Bank.
With particular thanks to Julie Clarke from the Arts department of Fingal County Council, who supported this project from the beginning and helped it to become a reality.
This choir featured on an RTE Radio documentary, "A Song for Kathleen", which you can listen to here.
Rehearsals take place every Tuesday in the Baldoyle Community Hall, 11-12.30.
