The Helena Choir is a unique and joy-filled experience that creates a community of singing seniors, including those living with mild Alzheimer’s and other early stage dementias, and their caregivers. Directed by seasoned local choir director, Kathryn Nicholson, choir members will sing old and new songs, learn vocal techniques and ensemble skills, and share musical memories together. No vocal experience is required, just a love of singing.
Note: Those with memory loss must be accompanied by a partner, family member or friend.
