In the StorySongs experience we take your stories or poems, individually and as a community, help with structure as needed, and then add music to create a song. Cathy DeWitt, Musician in Residence, leads this process, helping you choose the tempo, rhythm patterns, chord structures, major or minor key – all the components of composing a song. Everyone gets to participate in the process, hear the song, and sometimes even sing along! The experience inspires your creativity and broadens your understanding of the songwriting process. Selected songs are recorded and made available for download.

Sing for Life

The Sing for Life program seeks to achieve strategies for lifelong singing for Parkinson's patients and their care givers. Our classes include exercises for relaxation, posture, breathing and resonance. Our work together increases vocal strength and stamina and enhances general well-being.
