Event details: A ‘Summer Recital' organised by Anglia Ruskin University .

The evening, to raise funds for the Music Therapy Appeal, is being staged by a group of Music Therapy students, with all proceeds going towards the Appeal.

The mainly classical programme will include pieces by Debussy, Deparc and Britten and also cover a wide range of other composers to represent the different musical backgrounds of the performers.

Speaking about the event Sue Jacobs from Anglia Ruskin University said: ‘The Summer Recital is the culmination of the students' desire to demonstrate their passion for Music Therapy, raise awareness and support the Appeal.'

‘The students are all exceptionally good musicians which means everyone who comes to the concert will be sure of an excellent evening's entertainment - and it is all for a good cause.'

An established Allied Health Profession, Music Therapy is a form of treatment in which live, mainly improvised music is used to help people work towards achieving therapeutic aims, and can help people suffering from a range of conditions including autism, learning difficulties, dementia, physical disability, schizophrenia and depression.

The Music Therapy Clinic was established on the Cambridge Campus
in 2005 as a result of fundraising for the Appeal and is used both to treat those in need, and to train the growing number of Music
Therapy students. The course is delivered at Anglia Ruskin University within the Department of Music & Performing Arts.
