Pine Court Residents Leap Into Live Music!

PINE Court Housing Association residents were treated to a live performance by members of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the Leap into Live Music! programme. Leap Into Live Music! is designed to give people who have never attended a live music event the chance to do so at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, without worrying about the cost of tickets, refreshments and programmes. Denise Wong, Bilingual Independent Living Officer at Chung Hok House said: “Our residents really enjoyed the Leap into Live Music! event and many of them signed up to join the programme. We are looking forward to attending concerts together at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall in the future” Residents had the opportunity to meet with the orchestra after the hour long mini concert which took place in the residents lounge at Chung Hok House. The event was arranged in partnership with Liverpool Community Health (LCH) NHS Trust. The Social Inclusion Team at LCH work with excluded groups to increase awareness of health services and encourage individuals to access those services. Christine Wai Yin Lee, from the Social Inclusion Team for Liverpool Community Health, said: “We encourage people who are disadvantaged to join the programme, particularly members of the Chinese community. The mini concert at Chung Hok House was a great event and we were pleased that some residents chose to sign up to the programme and will be attending future concerts at the Philharmonic Hall.” For more information about Pine Court visit the website www.pinecourt-housing.org.uk.
