GUEST,Marion Playing nursing home gigs (94* d) RE: Playing nursing home gigs 18 Sep 02

A couple of questions:

1. What are good songs for a Halloween party at a stroke survivors' day program?

2. In my research into homes, day programs, and community centres that serve seniors, I've been surprised by the high percentage which are oriented to specific ethnic groups. Most common in Toronto is Jewish, then Chinese, then maybe Italian, but there are dozens of others. I'm already learning some Jewish songs - and I can imagine trying to develop some Chinese repertoire as well, just because there are so many Chinese venues. But I'm not sure how (or if) I should be approaching places titled Macedonian, Afghan, or Philippino... (a few I've gotten addresses for so far).

I don't think I can learn a respectable repertoire in each of these languages. Do you think there would be interest in a standard English program?

Thanks, Marion
