HealthPitch is proud to bring a performance of “The Audition, A Jukebox Opera On Your
Doorstep” to The Woolstore Theatre, Codford, Wiltshire on Saturday 14th September
2019 at 7 pm.
Solid scientific evidence shows how the arts can help us keep well, aid our recovery and support
longer lives better lived. However, the level of arts provision and constructive stimulation for
those in health & social care settings and isolated communities varies enormously.
HealthPitch mixes up opera with musical theatre in quality, original productions that are
accessible, relevant and fun, a celebration for all. They have already taken their productions to
over 50 diverse settings with enormous success: bringing quality music to these audiences,
enriching lives and stimulating discussion & practice on how quality arts engagement can
complement and enhance conventional medicine, helping to address some health and social
care issues within systems under great pressure.
And raising awareness about what innovative partnerships can achieve together: including
finding ways to share quality arts with these audiences in care homes, hospices or those looking
after loved ones at home.
HealthPitch recently teamed up in co-presenting at the “Music and the Mind” event at the
Wigmore Hall, London, with Renée Fleming, the world-renowned opera singer.
HealthPitch was started in Wylye by Camilla and her mother, Davina Vickers, after experiencing
what place opera has in stimulating the mind in illness.
“Moved to tears, it was glorious.”
“Such a buzz in the room. Thanks so much.”
“a great way to ‘demystify’ opera.”
“Quality is one of the magic ingredients… I was in absolute awe of the singers and the beauty
of their voices.”
“The Audition: A Jukebox Opera On Your Doorstep” is suitable for the whole family and being
an opera fan is absolutely not a prerequisite!
“By coming to this you help us take exactly the same performance to those who
cannot get out to the theatre!”
