Create a Musical Afternoon at Lytton Gardens Senior Community

Calling all musicians, dancers, photographers, and other golden hearted entertainers!

Come join Spencer and me to Lytton Gardens Senior Community and entertain the residents and staff for an afternoon (1.5 hours).  They have a grand piano available in the auditorium for us to use!  Our theme this year is "musicals."  I hope some of you know some songs from musicals.

Call time: 2:00pm
Showtime: 2:30pm - 4pm

We are looking for (but not limited to):

  • musicians
  • other entertainers (are you a dancer?  illusionist?)
  • photographers
  • setup
  • cleanup

Basically if you are interested, we will fit you into the program!

Anyone know how to play the music for the following songs? I'd like to do a sing-along (note to self to print out 30 copies of large print of the lyrics).

  • You are my Sunshine
  • Home on the Range
  • Side by Side
  • Let Me Call You Sweetheart
  • Danny Boy

    I ditto all the previous remarks! I felt that our event was a winner! It was great to see the seniors in the audience singing along, tapping their feet, clapping their hands...and some of them even getting up and dancing.

    Thanks again for everyone who sang: Judy, Nancy, Melody, Sylvia, little Hanna, Howard, and Bob...for the dance by Leonora, and for our pianist /singer Joyce.

    For my part, I enjoyed emceeing and singing my duets with Nancy and Joyce.

    Maybe we can all do this again next year. ^^

    I remember there's no speakers or any PA system there last time. Do they have it now? Or would any one of us bring a stereo or something to play background music and such?

      I have a small boombox. Spencer is bringing one too. But that's about all we got.

    I can't sing worth a lick, but I can help with the setup/cleanup and picture taking!

      I don't think I've ever heard a shinobue being played before, but it sounds great!

    I'm guessing Sept. 29 is the date of the performance...but there will be planning meetings and rehearsals, yes?

      Thanks for coming to oru planning meeting 2 days ago at Panera Bread, Judy. Also, I'm so glad to hear you'll be singing a song from My Fair Lady! Looking forward to it. ^^

    So far in the program, Alisa will perform a hula dance, and I'll sing a song or two. Of course, we'll need a lot more performers. Any talent that you have - sing, play an instrument, dance, do magic tricks, etc. - will enhance the concert.

    If you're interested, you can post a message here or email me. Once we have enough performers, we'll finalize the program.

    Thanks!

    Hi all, I'm excited to be organizing the program for our volunteer concert. We encourage everyone to come out and to enjoy the concert, as well as to meet the residents and staff!

    Of course, if you can participate in any way, whether with setup/cleanup or performing in the concernt, please let us know. As Alisa mentioned, the theme is musicals, so if you can sing a song or play a piece that's a musical number, that would be great!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
