'World Music Day', June 21st




During lockdown, 'Desert Island Discs' was trending on social media and people were asked to share their music choices. So we chose this as a theme for one of our virtual reality 'CST Friendship Groups'. Also, it is 'World Music Day' on 21st June, which makes this even more apt.



Prior to the session, we asked members to think about their favourite tracks and the one they would rescue from the waves if they had to. We also asked about the luxury item they would take with them to their desert island.



Members brought their ideas to the session and we spent some time noting down their choices. As we went through the quiz we paused to play some of their songs. It turned out to be a very person-centred session and it was so lovely to see people singing along with their chosen music.



Here's the graphic we sent around ...
