Young at Heart has Oct. 27 concert


The Young at Heart Chorus will present a free concert of old songs with an “Americana” theme, at 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, in the Good Samaritan auditorium, 3011 Buena Vida Circle.

Songs will include “When the Saints Go Marching In,” “South of the Border,” “Tumbling Tumbleweeds,” “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” and many more, chorus chair and co-director Ray Scroggins said in a news release.

Young at Heart entertains residents of assisted living and nursing homes in the Las Cruces area. The group has been in continuous operation since 1972, with the name of the group, the director, piano accompanist and venues changing through the years, Scroggins said.

There are currently about 25 members who practice two or three times and sing at four facilities each month. Music changes monthly, selected from a large collection of old songs, generally favorites of the audience and the chorus, he said. Programs are enhanced by varying the themes and by highlighting the talents of individual members with vocal solos or duets, group harmony, and instrumental accompaniment, Scroggins said.
