Joyful Voices is a community chorus for singers with Alzheimer’s or dementia and their caregivers. This chorus will meet in the Fellowship Hall at Salisbury Presbyterian Church on Thursday mornings from 10:00 am—12:00 noon starting September 13, 2018. The ensemble will provide an exciting opportunity for people in the surrounding community to join for a unique choral experience and will offer two public concerts per year.
Every registered singer must have a registered caregiver accompany them to each rehearsal. We encourage all caregivers to sing with the group, but that is not mandatory since dementia-aware volunteers will be available to assist as needed. Sing old and new songs, learn vocal technique and ensemble skills and share musical memories together. No vocal experience is required, just a love of singing.
The chorus will also offer very important opportunities for volunteers to come and sing along, contribute refreshments for social time and concerts, help with set up and clean up each week and assist with preparing the printed repertoire for chorus members. If you would like to volunteer, or know of someone who might be interested in registering for this chorus, please follow the links to our registration forms and information sheets.
