An excellent example of the results from the “Creativity and Aging Study” is the Sensational Singing Seniors.
The study showed that senior citizens who participate in a chorus for a year tend to have less depression, use less medication, improve their breathing, singing and speaking voices when compared with a nonsinging control group.
This spring the choir is presenting two shows: Tuesday, May 7 at the Ramona “Moni” Gilmore Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane in El Dorado Hills at 1 p.m. and Thursday, May 9 at the Placerville Senior Center, 937 Spring St. in Placerville.
The program “Younger Than Springtime!” will include favorites from Rodgers and Hammerstein shows such as “The King and I,” “Oklahoma!” and “The Sound of Music.”
Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
