Sentimental Journey Singers

SJSBegun in September 2019, Sentimental Journey Singers is for individuals with early-stage Alzheimer's or other memory impairment.  Participants, with their care partners, learn vocal techniques and three-part harmony while singing familiar songs and new pieces in a social group setting under the leadership of conductor Dr. Mary Ann East, also a performer and teacher and founder of Capital Harmonia, and pianist Rachel Thompson, a board-certified music therapist who works with adults with cognitive impairments and dementia. Sheet music and a CD are provided so participants can practice at home. Each semester culminates with a concert performance, free and open to family, friends and the general public,

Though in-person rehearsals are suspended due to COVID-19, classes will continue online in September 2020, as part of Encore University.  Register for Encore University HERE.
