"It really is wonderful." Member, Poplar Day Centre
"The people we play for at the day centres would never ever get to a jazz gig, but why shouldn't they get a chance to listen to live music?" Dom James, Extravagant Act 2007-2009
"Those in the audience can engage and reflect… this relationship is only possible because they are at ease, in familiar surroundings and with friends. If travel to a concert was called for, I doubt the quality of that engagement could be matched." Lucy Stevens, Contralto, Extravagant Act 2005-2009
