About this Event

Participants gather in a safe, welcoming, supportive and bright environment to sing both familiar and new songs, accompanied by the song leader Jennifer Noxon on guitar. Lyrics are provided in an ever-growing songbook that pulls from a variety of eras and musical styles i.e. light jazz, folk, swing, country, modern and traditional roots music. Each session starts with a gentle physical and vocal warm-up that helps bring one’s awareness to the breath, posture, body, and voice. Percussion instruments are available for those who like to ‘keep the beat’. Participants sit in a semi-circle format to sing. There is a short break in the 1.5 hour session when individuals can share information with one another. The program has been described as providing excellent stimulation for the mind and the memory. All levels of ability are welcome. Drop-ins are welcome for those who would like to give it a try.

  • September 10th to December 10th 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
  • $175.00 per couple.
