Heartstrings is a small group of professional musicians comprising two violinists and pianist. It plays a wide range of music from classical favourites to Jazz, TV themes and ballads. We are flexible and can also include other players and singers if needed. Heartstrings' music reaches past the spoken word, touching hearts. "We had lots of response from our residents, ranging from singing, clapping and tapping to the beat..several residents saying they felt they had been to a brilliant concert, - a real treat to listen and join in with". (Care home in Dereham)
