THE LATEST NEWS!

Love Notes Chorus (LNC) is Austin’s first Alzheimer's choir and is under the auspices of Music Memories Austin, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Due to generous help from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Love Notes Chorus will be resuming in-person rehearsals which will hopefully result in a long-awaited performance in November of 2021.

We currently have about 35 participants but would love to include more people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Due to current protocol and to keep all our chorus safe, we require participants to be fully vaccinated and wear singer’s masks which have been purchased by a grant from the Episcopal Diocese.

We will be meeting on Mondays from 10:45 - noon at St. Matt’s Episcopal Church’s Huffman Hall located at 8134 Mesa Drive, Austin, TX 78759

Those who are interested and want more information can contact Edie Elkjer (Musical Director) and Susie Higley (Administrative Coordinator) via email at: musicmemoriesaustin@gmail.com or can call Love Notes Chorus at

Music Memories Austin, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) under the direction of Edie Elkjer, and her business partner, Susie Higley, began facilitating workshops three years ago at Memory Powered by Active Connections (MPAC), St. Matthew’s respite care for people with Alzheimer’s.  

 

Realizing the tremendous impact of music on people suffering from this debilitating disease, Edie and Susie were inspired to learn more about Giving Voice Chorus, a chorus made up of persons with Alzheimer’s, their caregivers, and volunteers which began in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  This encouraged Edie and Susie to launch Love Notes Chorus (LNC) in September 2019.  

 

LNC is made up of the ideal ratio recommended by Giving Voice of one-third persons with varying stages of Alzheimer’s, one-third caregivers, and one-third volunteers.  

Visit the Love Notes Chorus website for more information on the choir and how to join.
