Music on the Mind is a two-part exploration of the complex and sensitive issues surrounding mental health.

The first half creates musical settings for poetry by John Clare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Dickinson and others, whose creative genius reflects their struggle to cope with ‘madness’.

The second half is based on Kay Redfield Jamison’s ground-breaking memoir, An Unquiet Mind, a frank and often funny account of her struggles with manic depression, otherwise known as bipolar disorder.

Stephen Fry acclaimed her as one of his personal heroes, and described Music on the Mind as 'a simply fantastic project' after its premiere in 2015.

This performance will bring together Vox Holloway Community Choir and the Maudsley Hospital’s Mind and Soul Choir, with mezzo soprano Clara Sanabras and the David le Page Ensemble.
