Stand in the Light Memory Choir
Stand in the Light Memory Choir (SITLMC) uses the power of singing to move people living with memory loss and their care partners to rediscover themselves, make new friends, laugh together and contribute to the community. The choir was started in 2016, under the Musical Direction of Cathy Reitz, whose own sister passed away from Frontotemporal Lobe Dementia. Choir members are typically experiencing early to mid-stages memory loss or speech impairment and work alongside caregivers and volunteer singers. SITLMC provides a way for their singers and care partners to connect, reduce anxiety, improve attitudes, and lighten moods. As one care partner described their experience in the choir, “This choir has brought him back to life and brings him and me so much joy! This is the highlight of our week. It gives us hope."
