Musical Memories dementia choir launches in Maidenhead

A new choir for people with dementia is launching at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead. Musical Memories is on Fridays at 2pm. The hour-long sessions are £6 per person (carers go free).

Musical Memories is led by local professional singer Rona Topaz. The friendly group will sing songs from their youth, including popular jazz, pop and movie theme tunes from the 1940s through to 1980s. Songs covered include Fly Me To the Moon, Que Sera Sera, Edelweiss, You Are My Sunshine, King of the Road and more. 

No singing experience is needed and it doesn’t matter if you think you can’t sing a note! The class begins with a gentle physical and vocal warm up followed by choir practice. There will be a brief interval and each session will end with a ‘goodbye’ song such as Bye Bye Blackbird.

Rona has been leading similar choirs since 2015 and currently leads choirs at two care homes. She developed a passion for raising awareness about dementia after caring for her mother for 9 years, who battled Frontotemporal dementia before her death in 2015.

Rona is also a singer/songwriter. She has performed at Norden Farm’s Studio Session and in theatre, cabaret and corporate events.
