Joyful Voices is a community chorus for singers with Alzheimer’s or dementia and their caregivers. This chorus meets in the Fellowship Hall at Salisbury Presbyterian Church on Thursday mornings from 10:00 a.m. — 11:30 a.m. The ensemble provides an exciting opportunity for people in the surrounding community to join for a unique choral experience and offers 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 also offers 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 find the registration form and information on our website at www.JoyfulVoicesChorus.org   or  contact Melissa Phillips who is the volunteer coordinator.  Her phone number is (804) 901-2899 and email address is  joyfulmelissaspc@gmail.com .


Due to the recommendations from health professionals and government officials concerning the COVID-19 virus, Joyful Voices Chorus will not be rehearsing for the 2020 fall semester, but we do hope to resume rehearsals in the spring of 2021, beginning on January 7.  May you all stay safe until we can meet again!
