Melland Day Centre

The quartet were invited to another AgeUK centre, this time in Gorton at the Melland Day Centre. This afternoon concert was performed to over 30 elderly people with varying degrees of dementia. A very warm but rewarding session where we start the participants singing and clapping along to the music performed by four trombones!
