Memory Lane Chorus is a choir that brings together people with dementia and their care partners, family members, and friends to sing in a chorus that fosters joy, well-being, purpose, and community connection. Singing can improve brain activity, well-being, and mood. You don’t need to be a good singer to benefit. An innovative partnership between the Youth Singers of Calgary and JB Music Therapy.

Time: 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM.
Location: Youth Singers of Calgary, Penner Studio (Studio B) | 1371 Hastings Cres SE, Calgary, AB, T2G 4C8
