Live Music Now is a UK-wide music outreach and musicians development scheme. The charity was established by Yehudi Menuhin in 1977, inspired by the vision that by embracing the power of music to transform lives, musicians play a central part in a healthy society.

Families with children with special needs community

In order to celebrate Yehudi Menuhin‘s birthday on 22 April, they are hosting a lot of interesting events, most notably the world premiere of The King, The Cat and The Fiddle. This is an adapted piece written by Menuhin himself. Live Music Nows mission is to bring inspirational experiences to even more people, all around the UK and beyond, which is why many events will happen in care homes, hospitals and special schools. Menuhin’s birthday will be a day to celebrate the healing power of music and its ability to transform lives.

Visit Live Music Now here to see the various and extraordinary event locations, such as National Showcaves, Snowdon Mountain Railway, Big Pit Coal Mine, Land Zoo, Sea Zoo, and many more.
