About the Good Memories Choir

For those with early stage memory loss & their care partners

No audition. Come join us!

Good Memories is a fun, upbeat community where people with early-stage memory loss and their care partners sing together, enjoying familiar music that they love. Our professional conductors and pianists make it fun. No audition, no pressure—just a great time. Choir members include people with memory loss, their care partners, and volunteers. No musical experience or training is needed. We welcome anyone living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia who can attend the structured weekly rehearsals and, best of all, wants to make great music and new friends!

Registration fee:

  • Spring Session: $195 (15 weeks)
  • Summer Session: $125 (8 weeks)
  • Fall Session: $195 (15 weeks)

Please add both people in the spaces provided on the online registration form.
Registration fee covers 2 people — care partner and person with early-stage dementia.

Also, please be aware that we require that a care partner accompany each person with memory loss to each rehearsal. Care partners are encouraged, but not obligated, to also sing with the choir. The opportunity is to spend 90 minutes each week doing something joyful together!
