About AGC

AGC is a dementia-friendly chorus where elders demonstrate the healing power of music. Through song, the chorus engages the heart and soul of the listener and brings memories of love, friendship, family, and community. Along with many positive benefits for memory and brain health, the AGC provides connection, community, friendship, joy and love for its members. The chorus works to counter social isolation and its detriment to the human spirit, and instead offer comfort, fellowship, and beloved community.
