Music in Hospitals is looking for musicians

31/05/2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Music in Hospitals & Care audition process ensures that they maintain the highest standards of both musicianship and communication in the delivery of their service for people in care. They currently have around 450 musicians who work on behalf of Music in Hospitals & Care, providing around 5,000 live concerts each year in care settings across the UK.

MiHC concerts can be both challenging and rewarding. Most take place in the afternoons and can involve a degree of travel to reach a care setting. In order to reach more remote parts of the, UK we may arrange a tour of care settings, involving an overnight stay in accommodation.

Music in Hospitals & Care’s musicians come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds: folk, classical, opera, jazz, stage, and screen to name a few. Musicians are selected as soloists, duos and occasionally as trios. Auditions can be applied for by contacting the MiHC office in the area in which you live.

Music in Hospitals & Care’s are currently looking for musicians across the central belt of Scotland for upcoming auditions they are hosting during May 2018 in Glasgow. They are particularly interested in hearing from experienced musicians to help support their work delivering live music within,

  • Mental health and dementia services
  • Tailoring live music for children and young people, to enable support to our work in special education and hospices
  • Projects or residencies within healthcare or community settings

Music in Hospitals & Care’s will be hosting auditions later in the year to support their work in Aberdeen, so are keen to hear from musicians who may be able to support their work in the North of Scotland and who are local to those areas. Please contact Penny Johnston (Concerts Manager) at our office in Edinburgh for more information about the opportunity – 0131 556 5848 or penny@mihc.org.uk

To request an application and equal opportunities form please e-mail edinburgh@mihc.org.uk
