Tulsa Aphasia Choir is an organization geared toward people with aphasia and their caregivers.Singing is beneficial for many people with aphasia, as it taps into undamaged areas of the brain and allows words to be produced more freely than they often are during speech. We will begin rehearsals during the first week of October, 2016, with the goal of performing in early December. Well-known music will be used, and absolutely no musical experience or talent is required! We welcome anyone with aphasia as well as their caregivers to participate. Please contact Sara Bennett by phone, email, or through our Facebook page for more information or to register.
