Intergenerational Singing at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center

The joy of music spans the generations as witnessed by fourth, fifth and sixth grade singers from Lake Forest Park Elementary School who recently joined the Senior Singers at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center to share songs and sing together. 

Both groups practiced together before coming on stage to perform for lunchtime participants -- the first public performance for the young singers. The elementary group, led by teacher Suzanne DeJong, sang a full program of gospels, folk, and current songs. 

The seniors shared a number of "oldies but goodies" and the program ended with the groups singing America the Beautiful together. 

Marcy March is the director of the Senior Singers. who meet every Thursday at 10 am at the Senior Center.  See them in performance at the Shoreline Arts Festival on Saturday, June 26, at 10:15 am in the Shoreline Room.
