Online Song singing Project
Under the Laois Keep Well Community Resilience Campaign, members of Laois Alzheimer’s Society are invited to participate in an on-line song-singing project called Musical Memories. Facilitated by Music Generation Laois, led by musician Nuala Kelly, the project aims to connect people through music from their homes in these difficult times.
There is an inter- generational aspect with local schools taking part, that not only creates Musical Memories but preserves them with songs such as Will Ye Go Lassie Go, Some Enchanted Evening and We’ll Meet Again handed down to the next generation. If you would like to take part or find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nuala on (087) 2264752
