Time for a tune

November 13, 2019

Music is a great way to connect with others, which proved to be true when some of our Brighton retirement living residents recently popped in to perform for our Brighton aged care residents.

Patty And Friends August 2019

Patty and a few close friends entertained residents with a collection of songs and ukulele renditions. For the first time, members of Vocally Wild joined Patty as part of the performance. Vocally Wild is a successful, long-standing, community choir based in Sandringham that aims to bring the joy of singing to the wider community.

Commencing with a specially written song about the welcoming nature of Mayflower, Patty and her performers played though a canon of favourites.

Ever the entertainer, Patty explained to attending residents the story of her unique ukulele shirt, which was sewn together from tea towels. A friend transformed the tea towels into a shirt after Patty couldn't bear to use them when she was given them as a gift.

Aged care resident Pam Rivers particularly enjoyed the performance and thanked Patty on behalf of the residents. The afternoon finished with a rousing chorus of Waltzing Matilda and another specially written farewell song.

Brighton Aged Care residents look forward to future performances from Patty and Vocally Wild.
