In sharing our thought leadership and best practices more and more, we are partnering with The Washington Chorus (TWC) to teach a cadre of chorus members the skills needed so that the organization can deepen its Connections Program. Through the training, they will be able to conduct participatory arts programs, using Arts for the Aging’s best practices, that contribute to better health and quality of life outcomes for older adults living with aging-related health impairments. As TWC artistic director Christopher so memorably put it, their goal is, “Not singing at; but with, in, and around.” Recently we spent a full day together with a leadership group from the chorus, modeling our practices in consort with one of our dearest client partners that hosted us, Downtown Clusters Geriatric Day Care Center in Washington, D.C.-we are grateful. Stay tuned for news about TWC’s pilot workshops in 2020 … our Year in Music.
