A CHARITY devoted to helping people overcome sensory loss will welcome young musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for a workshop.

Four students from the RCS will visit the Forth Valley Sensory Centre in Camelon on Friday, March 22 to deliver an unforgettable event to service users.

The group includes a harpist, oboist, pianist and singer, with the four of them taking visitors through percussions techniques as well as vocal warm ups.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear the students discuss their musical journeys and enjoy performances from a variety of genres including folk, traditional and classical melodies.

Jacquie Winning, chief executive of Forth Valley Sensory Centre, said: “Our volunteers had a truly magical time thanks to the previous support from the Royal Conservatoire students, and we’re delighted another group will be visiting to share their musical expertise.

“The event will not only be a fun-filled afternoon but will also help to raise vital funding for the services we offer to those with sensory loss.

“Sensory loss can be an isolating experience, leading to a loss of confidence and people not engaging in the activities they enjoy.

“That’s why we provide such a wide range of support services and activities, enabling people to live their lives to the fullest.

“Our programme of fundraising events secures critical funds for us to provide our life-changing services, and we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supports us.

“We look forward to welcoming as many people as possible.”

The visit will take place between 1pm and 3pm, with tickets costing £5. They can be purchased from sensory@forthvalleysensorycentre.org.
