A chorus for those diagnosed with early or beginning moderate Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments, along with their care partners, Sentimental Journey Singers offers the fun and social aspects of singing in chorus together!
Please join us at the “Sentimental Journey Singers” Open House on Monday, July 15 from 9:30 to 11:00am! We invite you to learn more about this exciting new choral program at Insight before rehearsals begin in September. The group will regularly meet on Mondays from 9:30 to 11:00 am this fall.
Insight is partnering with Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation’s largest choral program for singers 55+. With 16 Encore Chorales and 6 Encore ROCKS (rock n roll choruses) in the DC/MD/VA and New York City area serving over 1,250 singers, Encore is perfectly positioned to deliver an excellent choral program for those diagnosed with beginning or moderate memory impairment.
Singers, along with their care partner, will delight in singing familiar and new songs in three-part harmony. Singers will be rehearsing familiar music for the Christmas and Chanukah holidays along with favorites such as Somewhere Over the Rainbow. They will learn vocal technique skills to improve their singing voice and enjoy the thrill of singing in a chorus and the all-important social aspect of choral singing. There are no auditions; we hope the chorus will build camaraderie, confidence, and bring a lot of fun!
Call the Encore office at 301-261-5747 to reserve space for the singer and care partner. Encore invites anyone who is interested in this program, or other Encore choral programs, to visit EncoreCreativity.org to learn more!
