From the Telegraph Herald, October 1, 2018:

Tracey Rush, founder of the Northeast Iowa School of Music, has been selected in a competitive process to participate in the National Guild’s Catalyzing Creative Aging program.

With the information learned from this conference, Rush will focus on the development of a chorus composed of non-care-center Alzheimer’s disease patients in the Dubuque area, along with caregivers and others who might be interested.

The ensemble will be known as The Healing Harmonies Chorus.

“I am so excited to participate in this program,” Rush said. “The music and wellness program is something that is near and dear to my heart. I have been wanting to expand it for several years, but never had the time until now. We are looking at similar choirs that have been started in cities such as the Twin Cities, Des Moines, Chicago and Milwaukee,” Rush said. “These choirs have such a positive impact on those with dementia and their caregivers because music is so powerful. People remember music when they can’t remember much else.

David Resnick, executive director at Northeast Iowa School of Music states, “The connection between music and wellness has been Tracey’s passion for some time now, so this is a great opportunity for her to follow her heart,” he said. “And our memory loss community will benefit in many ways. Music stimulates the brain, sharpens focus and improves cognitive ability. It also brings joy.”
