The goal of these concerts is to create magical and extraordinary moments that help patients or seniors forget their painful and monotonous daily life for a few moments and bring them joy and entertainment through live music, interpreted by professional and committed musicians.

The beneficiaries are often unable to go to cultural places and particularly appreciate these cultural visits, connecting them with the outside world. The groups visited range from 15 to 60 people per concert.

The transport of sick, elderly or people with special needs is often very tedious. The Fondation EME therefore offers a wide variety of concerts in different institutions of the Grand Duchy in order to share the cultural offer of Luxembourg with a wider audience.

The benefits of music are well proven by both expert studies and the feelings of the accompaniers and the medical profession. These concerts bring moments of happiness and joy to the elderly, disabled or sick, unable to move to enjoy the cultural offer and comfort with music. Disease and age marginalize people in the labor force. Create musical encounters and special moments for these people, free to get carried away by the music and discuss after the concert with the musicians on the works played and emotions experienced. Music always brings people closer together.

Theses concerts are possible thanks to the generous support of the

Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte
