Joyful Noise is a chorus of forty-five adults, ages 17–70, with physical and neurological challenges and acquired brain injuries. Join the director and members of the chorus for a panel exploration of how they create music and how music enriches their lives. Some singing may be involved!
Founded in 2000 by Director Allison Fromm and her sister, chorus member Beth Fromm, the ensemble is hosted by Bancroft in southern New Jersey and Delaware. Joyful Noise fosters an atmosphere of community, acceptance, and teamwork in which members can discover their voices and express themselves through music. There will be plenty of opportunity for the audience to engage with members of the chorus and their director.
This event is co-sponsored by the Music Department, Psychology Department, and Cognitive Science Program.
