Off-Key Chorale

This choral group is comprised of people living with Parkinson’s, family members, caregivers, and volunteer singers from Key Chorale. Led by Artistic Director, Joseph Caulkins, the Off-Key Chorale provides an opportunity for individuals with Parkinson’s disease to improve and strengthen their voices through singing, and provides a fellowship activity for people whose social opportunities are often limited by this disease.

Each semester Mr. Caulkins creates a unique curriculum of vocal exercises, breathing exercises, and musical selections around a theme which concludes with an end of session performance for friends and family.

Off-Key Chorale is a partnership with the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s, Key Chorale of Sarasota and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota.

Neuro Challenge Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers through service, education and research. To learn more, please visit their website at ParkinsonsNeuroChallenge.org.
