Leonardtown, MD – The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) with the St. Mary’s County Department of Aging & Human Services is seeking an experienced choral director to serve as the new Volunteer Music Director to lead Senior Vibes during rehearsals and performances in Leonardtown.

Senior Vibes is a caring group of volunteers with RSVP that provides musical entertainment and friendly visitation to residents of St. Mary’s Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and Cedar Lane Senior Housing Community.

Practices are held once per month at the Garvey Senior Activity Center in Leonardtown, followed by two community performances per month. Senior Vibes performs classic favorites as well as folk, country, patriotic music, hymns, and more. RSVP is seeking an individual capable of leading a choral group who would like to help the Senior Vibes share their love of music with others.

Senior Vibes meets three Tuesdays per month to practice or perform, September-June. The group takes a brief winter and summer break.

The choir consists of 20-plus members and the schedule is as follows:

  • 1st Tues of month – Garvey Senior Activity Center –  10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • 2nd Tues of month – St. Mary’s Nursing & Rehab Center –  2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
  • 3rd Tues of month –  Cedar Lane (donut social) – 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Senior Vibes occasionally performs for extra events during the year. Also, during July and August, the group may meet once or twice to sing and socialize.

The group’s program is changed monthly, and a written list of songs is handed out to everyone. Singers who enjoy singing solos or duets are encouraged to do so. Performances usually last about an hour.
