Announcing a new choir for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia

Do you find yourself humming a favorite song? Do you sing in the shower? Have you sung in a choir? Do you love to sing “Happy Birthday?”

Can’t carry a tune in a bucket – No worries we’ll give you a bucket! No experience necessary – just a love of making music!

This new choir provides positive and joyful experiences for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their care partners.

Led by the fun and dynamic team of
Joseph Caulkins, Artistic Director Key Chorale
Stephen Fancher, Vice President of Development JFCS of the Suncoast

The choir uses the irrepressible power of singing to move people with Alzheimer’s, dementia and their care partners to rediscover themselves, make new friends and have fun – all while raising their voices in song. This choir celebrates the potential of people living with dementia bringing renewed purpose, learning, friendships, and happiness.
