“Off-Key” Chorale

What is “Off-Key” Chorale? It’s a collaboration!

Neuro Challenge Foundation, Inc. created a partnership with Key Chorale of Sarasota, FL and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota with the support of the Sarasota Memorial Institute for Advanced Medicine (IFAM). The “Off-Key” Chorale, comprised of Parkinson’s patients and their families, began a six-week course on January 14 led by Key Chorale Artistic Director Joseph Caulkins and accompanied by Artist Series Concerts co-founder and Artistic Director, Lee Dougherty Ross.

Joseph Caulkins writes about his experience working with the Parkinson’s patients in his blog, Mountaintop Experience in Southwest Florida. “Off-Key” Chorale began with an idea that Neuro Challenge Foundation‘s President, Doreen T. Sutherland and Executive Director, Judith Bell to create a Parkinson’s Disease choir in Sarasota. Joseph says that despite his already busy schedule, he knew he “couldn’t say no to this opportunity.” Read his inspiring account here.

We are so proud of this partnership and looking forward to the next session of “Off-Key” Chorale.
