Music is a powerful medium. It brings us back to memories of our first kiss, high school prom, singing in the church choir or road trips with friends. For people living with dementia, memories are often hard to come by. However, when music is added to the equation, the mind is opened up to memories of the past, bringing joy and transformation.
We are excited to announce Voices of Impact, a newly established dementia-friendly choir that caters to older adults in the northwest suburban area. This choir is geared for those in early- and mid-stages of living with dementia and the caregivers.
Former Anoka High School Choir Director and 2009 Minnesota Music Educators Hall of Fame Inductee, Bruce Phelps is working with us and said, “I am excited to lead this new venture. This choir is going to be a place for singers, both good singers and improving singers, to enjoy a morning of laughs, memories and community. I cannot think of a better reason to be involved.”
Our mission is to always promote an inclusive and welcoming environment within our community that supports and encourages those who may have fewer opportunities to spend time with others.
So please join us for an informational meeting at Faith Lutheran Church in Coon Rapids, 11115 Hanson Blvd NW on Monday, August 13 at 10 a.m. or Wednesday, August 15 at 10 a.m.
Singers of all abilities are joyfully welcomed!
