SINGING WITH SENIORS/
“"All it takes is one song to bring back 1000 memories."”
The Singing with Seniors program was borne out of Laura's time with her mother, Laura's biggest musical influence, during her last months in a nursing home. Using decades of music performance and previous experience working with geriatric patients (in her family's business), Laura provides musical enrichment by engaging residents with songs, stories, and conversation.
Laura is currently giving musical programs at over 60 facilities in the Capital region and Vermont. She works with residents of all ages and with varying degrees of ability and cognition, from the highly independent, to those profoundly afflicted, and can tailor programs for specific needs. Her genres include (but are not limited to):
- Standards/Oldies (30s-70s)
- Classic Country
- Young at Heart: 60s-70s
- Broadway Review! (Show Tunes/Movie Tunes)
- Holiday Programs (Christmas, Patriotic, etc.), to name a few.
Bookings are now being accepted for 2019. Please note that Holiday programs and afternoon programs tend to book first, and far in advance.
Laura (as well as her trio, Red Dirt Highway) is available for parties, Bar-B-Qs, Wedding ceremonies and receptions, funeral/memorial services, and all other events.
“Thank you -- As always, we had a ball. The residents and staff thoroughly enjoy you and your beautiful voice. What a Blessing!”
