Murrayside welcomed some transatlantic visitors for a special musical performance.
Murrayside opened its doors to the North Valley Chorale for an afternoon of folk music.
The popular 35-man strong choir, originating from Phoenix, Arizona, is currently touring Europe for a limited number of exclusive performances, including Stirling Castle and D-Day celebrations in Normandy, France.
On the day, the choir treated the residents to a number of traditional Scottish, Irish and American folk pieces, including “Home on the Range” and the traditional “Ten Gallon Hat”, both of which started a lively sing-along at the home.
After the performance, the singers joined residents and team members to share their stories and experiences.
Murrayside home manager, Michelle Reid, said: “We were thrilled when the North Valley Chorale contacted us to arrange a special performance for residents. Music can have many therapeutic benefits for older people, especially those living with dementia, by offering them a way to communicate and express themselves, while also triggering happy memories from their younger years – and singing traditional Scottish songs was the perfect way to do so.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to the North Valley Chorale for an unforgettable afternoon of folk music, and we hope to see them again when they next travel across the pond.”
