Creative Aging Choral Initiative (ON HIATUS)

The Ethel MacLeod Hart Senior Center and the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for beginning and experienced singers alike. The Creative Aging Choral Initiative, which aims to developOlder adult choral group singing the capacity for Sacramento's older adults to come together as a community and creatively express themselves through song, holds new sessions throughout the year. Led by professional music director Christiana Quick-Cleveland, participants become part of Singers with Hart.

Did you know that singing in a choir not only provides increased lung capacity but also helps lower the risk of falling for older adults? When you are engaged in the regular practice of deep breathing, as you do in choral singing, the result of sitting up to breathe deeply is improved overall posture, which reduces the risk of losing one’s balance and falling. Aside from its physical benefits, singing in a choir also helps older adults maintain an active mind by reading notes or learning a new song. In addition, the sense of belonging, camaraderie, and the thrill of performing you experience singing in a choir contributes to a happier and more joyful outlook in life.

Pre-registration is required for upcoming sessions of Singers with Hart. To register or for more information about upcoming session dates, visit the Hart Senior Center reception desk at 27th and J Streets in midtown Sacramento or call (916) 808-5462.
