The Savvy Singers is a singing group that performs concerts in Port Macquarie and meets Mondays under the tutelage of well known musical director, choir leader and music educator Robyn Ryan OAM. “This is a group of older people who sing together but who are concerned about losing some of their faculties through ageing,” Mrs Ryan said. “So this year I have started to introduce cognitive therapy movement”.
One member, 93-year-old Noreen McDonald first sang with her family around a wind-up gramophone. “This is a lovely group of people; the vibrancy combines this group in a magical way. I think that is a fabulous thing to be involved with. Coming here on a Monday sets me up for the week ahead. This is a very positive thing to do. Monday’s a great day.”
The group – Savvy Singers – boasts some 25 members so if you would like to participate and to perform contact Robyn 0407 007 993. (Port Macquarie News)
