The chorus unites people living with dementia and community members to create joy through song. The group meets weekly to practice, which is something many of the singers look forward to participating in each week.

"What we've found is it's had a therapeutic effect when we leave here," said Beth Elstad, whose mother sings the chorus. "Mom talks clear and remembers that we're coming back here, and looks forward to coming back here every week."

The fun is felt by all who participate. It is also a good opportunity for different family's to meet who also have family members with dementia or Alzheimer's. It's most fun for those who like to be social and love music too.

"Well I like music. And I like to sing, and I like to be with a group," said Victory Chorus member Rita Krochalk. "And so i feel very comfortable here. And i think of music as the rhythm of life."
