ABOUT THE HOPE GARDEN...

The Hope Garden is the bespoke professional music service created by singer/musician/composer Cecilia Le Poer Power. Cecilia is based in the Bath area, but serves nationally and internationally too.

In creating The Hope Garden, it was Cecilia's wish to actively bring music into communities where it may be of great benefit and in particular the hospice community, caring for both children and adults. Sharing songs and music making as a means of theraputic care, lies at the heart of The Hope Garden.

Cecilia currently runs a hugely popular singing group at Dorothy House Hospice and makes singing a great source of relaxation, community togetherness, support and fun. She is experienced working with adults with life-limiting conditions and also the bereaved.

Recently Cecilia has worked for Julia's House Hospice at their centres in Dorset and Wiltshire. She loves interacting with and engaging with children within the hospice setting. 'Music can be like a kind of magical and powerful light switch'.

Performing at Ceremonies - Music is such a positive way of bringing people together in a shared moment and has the power to uplift or move an entire congregation. It is Cecilia's wish to help to create a more personal and intimate kind of ceremony or occasion through music.
