Young Talent Time legend to serenade Anglican Care
She was the princess of our television screens in the 70’s, now Karen Knowles, the Young Talent Time legend, is coming to Anglican Care’s Alkira Respite & Day Therapy Centre in Kilpatrick Court to join consumers in music therapy and talk about some of her favourite moments growing up in front of an adoring Australian audience.
While it has been more than thirty years since Karen’s time on YTT came to an end, she has continued to forge a music career as a solo recording artist and live performer. She also collaborated and toured with legendary folk group ‘The Seekers’ for two years.
Karen will join Anglican Care to deliver their Music Therapy for Seniors workshop which has a range of health benefits and is an enjoyable and immensely popular activity for Anglican Care’s residents and consumers.
Anglican Care’s Community Care Services General Manager, Chris Giles said music therapy has scientific benefits in improving people‘s health and wellbeing.
“Experience has shown us the vast benefits of music therapy for seniors, particularly those suffering the symptoms of dementia, making it an important part of our holistic approach to lifestyle and wellbeing programs,” Chris said.
“We are so excited to have Karen join us. She will be sure to get our resident’s endorphins going and have them tapping along to some of their favourite songs.”
Karen will perform ten songs including I Feel Good, Sunny Side of the Street, Edelweiss, Silent Night and Bye Bye Blackbird. She will also help them prepare for their own live performance at the annual Anglican Care Sensational Seniors concert in November, where they will perform their very own routine in front of other Anglican Care residents, consumers, families, staff and volunteers. Karen will also be the headline act at this event.
