Choruses created for people living with Alzheimer's

Defy dementia through music. Share your voice with us.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, we are looking for new chorus members!

Who does the singing? Our choruses are made up of people living with dementia, support partners, and volunteers.

People with dementia sing in the chorus? YES! Our choruses are created for people with dementia. We want to shift the narrative around what’s possible when living with dementia.

Do you sing the oldies? Sure! But, we sing new and unfamiliar music too. Bruno Mars, anyone? Learning together is what makes it fun!

People with dementia learn new music? Yes! Our structured rehearsals and welcoming environment make learning fun and stress-free. Our motto is, “there is no wrong in this room.”

Your semester ends in a concert? Yes! We perform twice a year for family and friends. It’s the highlight of the year when we can share the joy of music and community with our audience. Check out our gallery of videos and photos from recent concerts!

Join us for a rehearsal and see what we’re all about. Send us an email or call (612) 440-9660 to arrange a visit.

Where we sing

We’re in the Twin Cities Metro. Click on the links for more information about our choruses and partnership locations!

Not in the Twin Cities? Join our Virtual Chorus on zoom and sing from anywhere! Or check to see if there’s a chorus near you in the Giving Voice Network!

If you’re looking for dementia-friendly activities, Giving Voice Chorus is so much more.

More than dementia friendly, our choruses are created specifically for people living with Alzheimer’s, other forms of dementia, mild cognitive impairment, or undiagnosed memory loss.

Our choruses bring together people in the early to mid-stages of Alzheimer’s or another dementia, care partners, and volunteers.

Everyone experiences the same program. We learn the same music and sing together as one voice.

Even better?

No prior singing or musical experience is necessary. At Giving Voice Chorus, everyone’s a singer!

Giving Voice Chorus is a place of belonging and acceptance. Join us for laughter, joy, and friendship.

If you, or a family member or friend, are living with dementia or memory loss, we invite you to join our chorus family.

Singing is transformative. Singing as a chorus is community.


Come join the fun! It’s more than music. Giving Voice Choruses are life-affirming and life-changing.
