soundLINCS UpBEAT! Caistor Occasional OrchestraBack to Activities
Caistor Occasional Orchestra. Join a friendly group of amateur musicians playing music together for fun. All you need is your instrument, all ages and abilities are welcome!
UpBEAT! is a soundLINCS service to support the health and wellbeing of the community, and people with mental illness, which Social Prescribers and Health Care Professionals and Providers can ‘Tap Into’ and refer with confidence the use of music.
Music is fantastic for good health and well-being, a strong, cognitive stimulus, ideal for social engagement, mental health and strengthening the brain’s executive function, reducing stress, depression, dementia and making people feel good!
This very powerful art form has the ability to appeal to many people. This is due to numerous types and ways to access music. A positive musical experience for a participant can only be achieved when ensuring a good understanding of expectation/desires (often unknown at the outset) is married with the correct musical opportunity.
This is where soundLINCS can help with UpBEAT!

- Music releases mood enhancing chemicals in the brain such as dopamine.
- Music encourages a sense of group connection and can be an excellent place to meet new friends.
