“Shake, Rattle, and Roll” rocked down the halls of Snyder’s Nursing Home on Tuesday, June 24. The Salem Senior Singers visit the home the last Tuesday of every month, singing songs to residents and guests. This go-round included the “Chatanooga Choo Choo,” “Me and My Gal,” traditional church hymns, and showtunes.
“Songs you can’t hear on the radio anymore,” Wilton Coleman, the choir’s director, said, “you can hear here from the Salem Senior Singers.”
Most of the group’s members have a love for, and a history of working with music. Pianist Jeanne Browning played at Locust Grove Methodist Church for 25 years, and she now plays with the Singers everywhere they go. The group will sing for churches and nursing homes, most recently working out a monthly scheme with Our Lady of the Valley.
