Peekskill Glee Clubs Share Music With Seniors

PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – Several area musicians spent their Friday evening sharing music with residents of the Drum Hill assisted living facility in Peekskill.

City of Peekskill music teacher Stephanie Purcell, who teaches piano and voice at her downtown artist loft, trains three glee club groups several times a month at her home.

"I have groups of children and adults that come to my house once a week and learn songs and they love to go sing for the people at Drum Hill," Purcell said.

The clubs performed several well-known songs, including “Frere Jacques,” “How Much Is that Doggy in the Window,” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” Michael Jackson's “You Are Not Alone” and John Lennon's “Imagine.” Some members also played piano on some tunes. 

"They perform in the round, where one group starts and then the next group starts and they all sing counterpoint to each other," she said.

Purcell's has two youth groups, one for children 7-9-years-old, another for children 10-15-years-old and one adult group.

"We usually perform every two or three months," she said.

The clubs are always looking for members and anyone looking to participate can call Purcell at (914) 924-1282.
