IOP, VocalEssence Vintage Voices: Older Adults Living Fully Through Song
16 Jul 2014
Published To
Description

Vintage Voices integrates the arts into everyday lives of older adults (ages 75-90) by fostering the creation of choirs in assisted living facilities. Activities include weekly choral rehearsals for 12 weeks, culminating in an on-site concert for all residents as well as an excursion to see a VocalEssence concert in a professional venue. This interactive, consistent, and ongoing approach aims to elicit proven health benefits of creative arts, including improved health outcomes, reduced depression, increased engagement and pleasure, and improved self-esteem.
