Intergenerational Drum Circle

Sunday, March 27, 2022
3:00 - 4:00 PM

Event type: 

  • Community Event

Presented in collaboration with the Jenks Center and the Winchester Intergenerational Team

Join us for an afternoon of fun! Together, we'll enjoy an intergenerational drum circle for youth and senior adults that promotes personal expression, socialization, and camaraderie. Group drumming can be a healthy activity and no prior music experience is necessary.

On a deeper level, group drumming builds bridges between generations while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect, and respect for others. It is not really about the drumming, but using the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression.

This drum circle will be facilitated by WCMS Music Therapist and faculty member Monika Gibbons. Trained intergenerational facilitators will be on hand to support and encourage bonding between the generations. Seniors are encouraged to bring a grandchild or youth friend. Children should be aged 8 or older.

Sign up by Monday, March 21; space is limited. Free admission. Register on the Jenks website or call 781-721-7136. The program will be held in accordance with Jenks COVID policies.
