Think of Your Favorite Song
How does it make you feel?
It doesn’t matter what style of music you like best — gospel, jazz, classical, big band or the hits of your — music connects us with memories that bring joy.
Susan Carol is a Certified Clinical Musician who has shared music with residents at Westminster Canterbury-Lynchburg and added joy to their lives for more than two years. Her one-on-one music care visits with residents in assisted living and healthcare are therapeutic, promoting relaxation and a mind-body-spirit connection.
And her teaching and leadership of the Choir Chimes group — like a bell choir but with lightweight instruments — adds positive energy to residents’ lives. She has also shared her music during Chapel and with adults receiving care through our Senior Independence Hospice program.
It’s a bright spot in my day when she comes.» Hear more testimonials
Funding for this program has been provided by a grant from the Greater Lynchburg Community Trust to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, private donors, and the budget of Westminster Canterbury. Unfortunately, the grant will not be renewed.
This important, therapeutic music program needs your help now. Our goal is to raise $8,000 to keep the therapeutic music program on our campus two days a week. Won’t you help us?

We had the wonderful experience of hearing the union of two instruments, the harp and the harmonica. My husband, Joe, just lit up and joined right in with his harmonica.» Hear more testimonials
