Enriching musical experiences are an integral part of Amica’s premium lifestyle for seniors. From innovative song
writing projects to dementia-inclusive concerts, our partnership with non-profit Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall delivers joy and optimism to Amica residents and other Canadian seniors.
The Lyrics & Legacies project
Now in its second year, the Lyrics and Legacies project pairs Amica with accomplished songwriters and musicians to turn residents’ life stories into original, professionally produced songs. The program helps residents celebrate what made them who they are and leaves a legacy for their loved ones.
Some of the most special aspects of the project are the uniqueness of the songs, and how each resident’s stories are brought to life in music. The final versions are heartfelt reflections of mutual discovery, life milestones and incredible storytelling. By the end of the process, each song represents an emotional journey, and a lasting bond has formed between resident and songwriter.
