Launched in 2012 as an outreach effort of the Larimer Chorale, the Silvertones Senior Choir provides an avenue for active older adults to engage in recreational singing. By its very nature, singing in a choir requires collaboration and cooperation, reduces isolation, and creates an inclusive environment. The emphasis of the program is on camaraderie and singing for the fun of it. The Silvertones Senior Choir now has more than 180 members, ranging in age from 55 to 98.
The Silvertones demonstrate that learning, making, and sharing art enriches everyone throughout their lifetime. Singing is a full body and brain exercise that is accessible to all and that addresses seniors’ needs for physical activity, mental stimulation, and cognitive engagement. Singing in a choir provides an enjoyable community experience, fosters the realization of life-long learning goals; and encourages friendship and teamwork. Through this program, the Larimer Chorale has improved its understanding of how older adults find joy, connection, improved health, and a renewed sense of purpose by engaging in the choral arts. The Silvertones also demonstrate what aging voices can do. Each day choir members defy ageism and stereotypes by showing that older adults are active, enthusiastic, curious, and willing to try new recreational activities.
The Dickens Carolers of the Larimer Chorale are 20 outstanding vocalists, auditioned from within the ranks of the Larimer Chorale. They perform as quartets and smaller ensembles and are available for hire for various community celebrations and functions as well as private parties throughout the holiday season. They wear authentic Victorian costumes, made by soprano Marian Railsback.
