Like the founding Minneapolis chorus, Giving Voice Chorus St. Paul is a unique and joy-filled choral experience for people living with Alzheimer’s and their care partners.
Launched in September 2016, the chorus is a collaborative project of Giving Voice Initiative, MacPhail Center for Music, Lyngblomsten, Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, Jewish Family Services of St. Paul, and Health Partners’ Center for Memory and Aging.
Giving Voice Initiative and MacPhail Center for Music have created a strategic alliance that makes the Giving Voice Chorus- St. Paul a uniquely artistic, innovative, and heartfelt experience for all involved. Giving Voice Initiative is a non-profit formed to inspire and equip organizations around the world to build choruses that bring joy, well-being, purpose, and community understanding to people with Alzheimer’s and their care partners. MacPhail is a non-profit community music school serving 15,500 students from 6 weeks to 100+ with exceptional musical learning experiences.
Come join us—sing old and new songs, learn vocal technique and ensemble skills, and share musical memories together. The chorus is directed by MacPhail Center for music teaching artist, Jeanie Brindley-Barnett. Weekly rehearsals are 90 minutes long with social time before and following rehearsal. The chorus performs publicly at least twice a year in the St. Paul area. No vocal experience is required, just a love of singing.
The St. Paul chorus meets at Lyngblomsten Chapel, 1415 Almond Ave, St. Paul, MN, From 10 am to Noon on Mondays.
