Senior Singers tuning up in support of St. Vincent Place

Admission to 3rd annual benefit concert Thursday at Moose Lodge is by donation
'Choir consists of 55 young-at-heart seniors aged 58 to 97 who love sharing their love of music with others', director Sonya Masotti says

St. Vincent Place says demand for the organization’s services continues to increase as the cost of living keeps going up.

In particular, the St. Vincent Place food bank has been seeing a sharp increase in the number of families with children and those who are employed but are still struggling, the organization said in a release.

That's why they are grateful for the support of some music-loving seniors for their ongoing support.

The Senior Singers Sault Ste. Marie are inviting all members of the public to their third annual benefit concert in support of St. Vincent Place this week. 

Set for 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, the concert takes place at the Moose Lodge at 543 Trunk Rd.

Admission is by donation, whether monetary, nonperishable, or clothing, St. Vincent Place said. Refreshments will be provided. 

The Senior Singers say they have prepared an upbeat spring program featuring songs that will appeal to fellow seniors, such as Put on a Happy Face, Bye Bye Blackbird, On the Wings of a Dove, The Old Rugged Cross, and Beer Barrel Polka.

“The Senior Singers’ mission is to perform uplifing, cheerful songs in all nursing and retirement homes at Christmas and in the spring,” said Sonya Masotti, the Senior Singers director.

“We also support one charity, St. Vincent Place, with a benefit each spring. Our choir consists of 55 young-at-heart seniors aged 58 to 97 who love sharing their love of music with others.” 

The Singers hope some attendees will remember the songs and sing along with them.
