Dementia friendly choirs and choruses are popping up all across America!
The dementia friendly choirs and choruses listed below are created for people living with Alzheimer’s, other dementias, undiagnosed memory loss.
We invite you to experience the fun of singing, the joy of laughter, and the power of music.
If you are looking for a dementia friendly activity that is fun and joy-filled, try singing! Music is a connector. Join a chorus and bond with others over the songs we love.
You don’t have to be a great singer to reap the social and health benefits of singing. These dementia choirs are all non-audition community choruses, specifically for people living with Alzheimer’s, other dementias, and undiagnosed memory loss.
In each of these choruses, you’ll find a welcoming community geared for everyone’s active and successful participation.
It’s more than a sing-a-long. These choruses are about learning the music and singing in a concert for friends and family. Come, rediscover possibility. It’ll be the best day of the week!
You have friends on your Alzheimer’s journey. This is why we sing.
