There are many community choirs sharing Christmas cheer, but there’s one with a unique purpose.
Giving the gift of music is not only meant for those listening but for those singing in the choir as well.
The Gleeful Choir started in 2018 to help connect memories for those experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Emily Christensen, the founder of the choir, watched other groups start using music to help patients with memory loss. Their success inspired Christensen to pitch the idea of creating a local choir through Jewish Family Services.
