Musical Connection with Chris White – Video

About This Video

This workshop is not your regular sing-along; activities include singing songs with and without words, playing drums, kazoos and shakers and making up new songs. You can also request your favourite song and share a story with others as you experience the joy and the power of music. Group leaders Chris White and Moe Archambault use rhythm, song, gesture, dance, and humour to engage participants in the spirit of friendship and fun.

The Musical Connections series provides an opportunity for people living with dementia and their friends and family to experience a live, in-person or virtual musical performances.
