Residents really enjoy having entertainers come to Parklands. We have had a good variety over the last few weeks, which has catered to all of their tastes and sometimes introduced them to different music, which they found they enjoyed.
From the very popular keyboard player, John Strand, who is a friend of a resident, Margret H, to very talented and much enjoyed flutist, Mary Gornick, who was just magical… transporting residents off to their own worlds; tapping feet or closing eyes and conducting the music.
Tim Arthur sung and played a wide variety of music on his electric guitar, which got some people dancing.
Victoria entertained us with ‘Date Night at the Movies’ show with singing and a bit of dancing. Then Nathan Rhodes serenaded us with his repertoire of songs, again much enjoyed, with residents singing along with him and putting in requests.
Then most recently we have had Teresa de Roberto return, who sang many requests of old time songs and popular songs from musicals with her beautiful operatic voice.
