Chantry Centre musicians say it’s never too late to learn

According to those who have joined the Chantry Centre stringed instruments group, it is never too late to learn something new.

Each Monday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., a group gets together to sing and play music.  There are more than 10, some are experienced and some are learning but the main objective is to have fun.

Leader JoAnne Tomori is an example of ‘it’s never too late’ as she didn’t play any instrument until she was 65 and now she plays three and leads the string music group.

Heather Wallace, another life-long learner, now plays the ukulele which she didn’t start until after retirement age.

The group has now been play four ‘gigs’ a month at local retirement homes, the Care Centre and the Day Away program.“It is such fun playing and singing  songs from our youth,” says Heather Wallace, “and it just goes to show that it’s never too late to learn.

For anyone interested in giving it a try, call JoAnne at 373-6775.
