Principal Flute and Resident Music Therapist Amina Hussain wins prestigious Association of British Orchestras Award.
Our Principal Flute and Resident Music Therapist, Amina Hussain, has been awarded a prestigious Association of British Orchestras award for demonstrating the unique power of music to improve lives.
On the opening night of the ABO conference at Bristol, Amina was awarded an ABO Classical Music award Award for demonstrating the unique power of music to improve lives. An incredible musician and community leader, Amina has been working with our Music in Mind team, delivering music-based therapy for people living with dementia, running weekly sessions for people with learning disabilities in a residential home, and working with older adults to reduce isolation.
Amina has been on quite a journey with us, sharing our Music in Mind work internationally, appearing on national TV, as well as being a key member of our orchestra, performing in countless concerts.
Amina’s work is a fantastic example of how music can improve people’s lives both on and off the stage and how both strands of work can be complementary to each other and not in competition. We are so proud of everything she has done. Well done, Amina! You Rulle!!!
