VSO musicians offer live, intimate performances at senior independent and assisted living centers throughout Clark County during the year. We understand the transforming power of music, particularly with the elderly; it allows individuals to reminisce and relate to emotions and experiences in a unique way. In fact, music has the ability to unlock a world of memories for those struggling with dementia. Studies show that in seniors with dementia, music re-awakens many and brings out raw emotions, expressions and memories. Music may also increase cognitive function and balance, reducing the risk for falls.
