MAIA perform for Art on Your Doorstep

MAIA THE BAND 🎹🎺🎸🎡 🎢 Art on Your Doorstep Performances 🎢 "Absolutely wonderful. Good exercise! Good company. Lots of laughs." In May and June, MAIA performed at a variety of care homes and community centres as part of the Rural Arts "Art on Your Doorstep"; a project that promotes Over 75's to participate in a range of creative activities. Maia kicked off their tour with us, with their first performance at Sowerby House. Right from the beginning the band interacted brilliantly with the residents, promoting a wonderfully positive atmosphere.We got some great feedback from both residents and staff at Sowerby House: "Great interaction and participation. Every one of my residents were awake and involved. Alice said she hopes for Maia to come again. She very much enjoyed it and she is normally very reserved." (Staff member) "Raised my mood and gave me a boost. I loved singing along and the songs meanings uplifted
