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.
