Giving Voice choruses foster joy, well-being, purpose and community understanding as they celebrate the potential of people living with dementia. A Giving Voice chorus brings renewed purpose, learning, friendships, and happiness to people in your community living with Alzheimer’s disease. It changes the attitudes of care partners, family members, friends, and community members, bringing people with dementia out of the shadows through shared music making.
Become a part of this worldwide movement! Giving Voice can provide tools to help you launch a chorus as well as give you guidance in how to sustain a chorus in your community.
“I’m part of something; not a stranger. I’m still here. I’m connected.” “I can be any way I need to be in here. I’m with people." I’m living in the moment and finding the joy in every day." “There is no wrong in this room.” “But with this disease I’m learning to enjoy the moment, and I’m finding that I like myself this way.” —Singer with Alzheimer’s

Choruses are encouraged to join our Giving Voice Learning Network on Facebook. This community is designed for people or groups who are looking to start or are working with a chorus for people living with Alzheimer’s Disease and their care partners. This network provides a platform for sharing knowledge and experiences.
