NORWICH – Chase Memorial Nursing Home and Chenango Memorial Hospital will present the Over the Rainbow choir, a collaboration between the residents of the two homes. They will perform at 11:30 on Thursday in the free entertainment tent at the Chenango County Fair.
According to Chase’s activities director Judy McCall, Chenango Memorial was contacted about performing at the fair and asked if Chase wanted to participate. She said the activities director at Chenango Memorial didn’t feel qualified to lead the choir and also wanted more voices so the performance would be better heard by the crowd.
“It was a good match,” said McCall. “They have a pianist for accompaniment, but they didn’t have a choir director.”
