Circle of Song (Nepean)

November 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:30am on Tuesday, repeating until December 11, 2018

Participants gather in a safe, welcoming, supportive and bright environment to sing both familiar and new songs, accompanied by the song leader Jennifer Noxon on guitar. Lyrics are provided in an ever-growing songbook that pulls from a variety of eras and musical styles i.e. light jazz, folk, swing, country, modern and traditional roots music. Each session starts with a gentle physical and vocal warm-up that helps bring one’s awareness to the breath, posture, body, and voice. Percussion instruments are available for those who like to ‘keep the beat’. Participants sit in a semi-circle format to sing. There’s a short break in the 1.5 hour session when individuals can catch up or share info with others. The program has been described as providing excellent stimulation for the mind and the memory. All levels of ability are welcome Drop-ins are welcome for those who would like to give it a try.

Dates: Tuesdays: September 11th – December 11th. 1030 AM to 12PM
