This fun, free, IN-PERSON interactive program is powered by the talented Community Artist Fellows and showcases the expressive power of music. We invite those who love music to join us in making, enjoying, and discussing a variety of musical compositions.
We welcome all families and individuals affiliated with the Penn Memory Center. Carers (caregivers and care partners) are also encouraged to join. We welcome all experience levels and will make the class accessible to those with cognitive impairment or dementia, however, those with a diagnosis of dementia will need a partner for the program. This class is best suited to those with mild to moderate staged dementia.
Creative Expressions Through Music is a unique opportunity for caregivers and persons living with dementia to connect and experience positive engagement together.
Schedule: This class will be held Thursdays, October 5 through December 7. The class will start at 11 a.m. and last until 12 p.m.
Location: Curtis Institute (1616 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA 19103), Lenfest Hall, Room 411
