By Rachelle Bunch, Alto and Marketing Team Leader for Magnolia Chorale
The Magnolia Chorale had the honor of singing for the residents at Aegis Living of Queen Anne at Rodgers Park last weekend. As an ensemble that strives to do community outreach, we often get the opportunity to share the stage with middle school and high school choirs around Seattle. However, our favorite concert each season is sharing our music with senior citizens.
Music is known to help seniors with many aspects of their lives. It can improve health and mental well-being and bring joy. Here are just a few examples:
The Magnolia Chorale loved sharing our music with Aegis, and we look forward to singing for you again in the future.

Even though I'm not an senior, I've been really stressed and anxious. It's so cool that music therapy can help reduce stress and aggressive behaviors. My grandmother also has dementia, so it's great that music can also slow down how faster her lingual skills deteriorate. Where can I learn more about how music therapy works?
