Watch City Singers is running from April to June, 2022!
Do you love music and singing? Want to feel more confident about your voice, your mind, and yourself?
Put your worries and fears behind you by joining the new Watch City Singers group, which meets each week for 90 minutes right at the Waltham Council on Aging. It’s free to join, and you don’t need to be a great singer or know how to read music to be part of this fun, supportive group.
Listen to and sing along with familiar tunes, chosen by you. We’ll stretch and move around, keep our minds sharp, and learn to speak and sing clearly and confidently with good diction, pitch, and rhythm. At the end, we’ll present a final performance of the songs and skills we’ve learned for our friends and family. Have fun, enjoy some great music, and let your voice be heard!
About Watch City Singers
Watch City Singers is one of two Vitality Arts programs at Powers Music School improving the physical and mental well-being of older adults. It is part of the nationally growing field of creative aging, which aims to combat isolation and boost the health of older adults through participatory cultural arts programming, particularly during the challenging years of a pandemic.
Artistic Director Mary Cunningham challenges each participant to actively practice new vocal techniques, music-reading skills, and other concepts in choral music and assists them in selecting appropriate repertoire for classes and the final performance. Each week, singers increase musical skills, self-confidence in their abilities, social connections, and a deep sense of purpose and belonging.
We are thankful to have the support of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Project Grant, East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation, and Lifetime Arts to make this program possible.
