July 25 & 26
This group offers everyone a fun and authentic musical experience by tapping into the brain’s remarkable ability to creatively engage in the moment through music. Current research finds that many people with memory loss learn to move better, remember more, and even regain speech through listening to and playing music. Old Town School’s Memory Singers draws upon the rich traditions of American and world music forms known and cherished for generations. Members sing a variety of songs, learn vocal technique and ensemble skills, and share musical memories together. The experience also helps reduce the stress and anxiety of care giving by allowing both the caregiver and person they care for to take a needed respite from their roles. Members of this first artistic community will be invited to choose a title for the group and will be an instrumental part of initiating the vision for this program as it grows. No vocal experience is required, just a love of singing.
Note: Registration is per person. Each registration requires a partner registration.
