Our Christmas Chorus ensemble visited three different Sr Living facilities to spread our Christmas cheer. We spent several hours walking the halls, stopping to sing a few songs for residents who weren't able to leave their rooms. We also performed sets in dining rooms and multi-purpose rooms where residents gathered to listen. Our favorite part of these performances is singing in the memory care units. Most of the time they are distant and and nonresponsive when we first arrive. But by the time our set is finished, they are smiling and often singing along with us. It is always heart warming and gratifying to see the smiles on their faces as they recognize these old melodies.
Nickel Plate Express Reindeer Ride
Sun, Nov 25 2018
3 Hollies and a Bari serenaded passengers on Nickel Plate Expresses Reindeer Ride. This quartet was formed from our Christmas Chorus to provide holiday entertainment on the train. The close quarters made it impossible to use the entire Christmas Chorus, but this quartet was just the right size to sing in the aisle as the riders enjoyed this fun ride. We even had some audience participation with our jingle bells! This was so much fun and we can't wait for our next opportunity to ride the rails with Nickel Plate Express!
