Concerts in a Virtual World

Virtual events, training and concerts are the new norm at NAPA. With their powerful ability to not only reach but impact NAPA members and supporters across the UK and the world and enabling an accessible and inclusive experience. The accessibility of virtual events is second to none, we are now able to reach audiences of all sizes and demographics, meaning our events are no longer geographically limited. We do love to see you in person and we will be offering face-to-face events too, so watch this space!

NAPA Concerts

Attending a concert is typically a fun activity, it’s common for people to feel a lightness of spirit for several hours or even days afterwards! and now technology has blessed the 21st Century with a variety of options as a means of achieving different objectives. Yes, even concerts don’t have to involve physical gathering anymore and there are no spatial boundaries. A concert hall or care home living room can only hold so many people. However, an online concert has the potential for an unlimited audience. The geographical position of the show is irrelevant too. The artist and the audience can experience the performance from a location of their choice. We can now enjoy a concert from a bedroom, living room or patio.

Concerts help raise – spirits, the roof and essential funds for NAPA!

  • In June 2020 we held our first online benefit concert in aid of the NAPA Helpline, we were delighted to be supported by the London College of Music, Musical Theatre Students who provided a wonderful afternoons entertainment and raised over £3,000 enabling us to extend the NAPA Helpline hours.
  • In December 2020 we held two more concerts, also in aid of the Helpline, this time the theme was Connect by Candlelight, we were grateful for the support of a number of partner organisations who provided their talent for all to enjoy and helps us to raise £2,000 to support the NAPA Helpline.

Mezzo Soprano, Lily Armstrong led us in song, as we danced the afternoon away! Thousands of care home staff and residents joined in.
