EMBRACE Nederland’s vision
EMBRACE Nederland is the social branch of CityProms. EMBRACE Nederland uses the power of music to give vulnerable people a better quality of life. EMBRACE Nederland wants to enthuse young people for classical music and for a choice of profession as a classical musician within the care sector.
EMBRACE Nederland’s mission
EMBRACE Nederland has created innovative and exemplary classical music projects where classical musicians can find a workplace in other places than concert podia and all within the context of the wellbeing of vulnerable groups and the education of pupils and students.
We improve the quality of life of vulnerable groups by organising music projects for people with dementia, people of all ages with disabilities and lonely elderly people. During the projects we also train the care staff and volunteers to continue, further develop and to preserve these musical experiences (legacy).
We provide music education projects for pupils and students in primary, secondary and higher education.
