Young at Heart senior chorus needs piano player


Las Cruces’ Young at Heart senior chorus wants you – if you can play the piano!

Young at Heart plans to return to rehearsing and performing later this year, said chorus chair Ray Scroggins. But they need a second pianist to accompany their singers.

“If you can play, we’d love to have you join us,” Scroggins said in a news release.

Young at Heart is a volunteer chorus that rehearses two Monday afternoons a month and performs four Thursday afternoons a month at local senior homes.

“Our music is easy and fun, with familiar songs that have ‘real melodies,’ the kind we enjoy singing and our audiences love,” Scroggins said. “We don’t do complex music with multiple voice parts, and we change our program and theme every month.

“Our hope is to find someone who can work together with our current pianist to share the work and keep our programs going without anyone getting overloaded,” he said.

If you are interested in being that accompanist or know someone who is, contact Scroggins at 262-490-7968 or ray@scroggins.biz.

Young at Heart entertains residents of assisted living and nursing homes in the Las Cruces area and has been in continuous operation since 1972, with the name of the group, the director, piano accompanist and venues changing through the years, Scroggins said.
