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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please join us for our winter and spring concerts! Concert dates and times as well as ticket information can be found on www.JoyfulVoicesChorus.org.
