Join Uprising CONNECT for an afternoon of music, laughter, and community with Senior New Yorkers! The Uprising is partnering with Sing For Your Seniors, a nonprofit that uses music to change lives! We are very excited to collaborate to bring the seniors of The Encore Senior Center a very special performance!
Who should sign up: Musical theatre performers or singers with professional experience, or if you hold a degree in a performing arts field.
What to expect: A SFYS session runs 1 hour. Artists should be prepared to sing about 4 songs of their choosing with an accompanist (who is provided). Songs from Broadway and The Great American Song Book are recommended. You must be memorized and bring sheet music. Singers will take turns sharing their material with a welcoming and grateful audience. After the session there is a 15 minute “meet and greet” with the seniors to mingle and socialize.
Sing For Your Seniors is a non-profit in our 11th year of bringing live performances to seniors in care facilities, hospitals, and centers all over the Manhattan area. Sing For Your Seniors’ goal is to bring the arts to seniors in need and to break down age gap barriers in our community using the universal language of music. Learn more at singforyourseniors.org
