On September 9, 2014, we experienced rainy, soaking and soggy weather… we conducted a Remo Health Rhythms group empowerment drum session with the Innovative Senior Champion Program at New Zion Baptist Church in Wlliamsburg, VA. After the opening wellness exercise, we matched our mood and played a wide selection of percussion instruments. The seniors had an energetic beat while the volunteers and coordinators mood was more solemn and subdued!

We quickly transitioned into making our own rain storm with the rain stick, ocean drum, wooden frog, versa drums, cabasa, Native American Flute and thunder tube. Our rainstorm experienced some chaotic and hectic moments.

Then we moved to playing the 30 in Remo Drum Table … the seniors remained sitting while exploring with their fingers, hands and mallets. The steady tempo contributed to a several songs including “Battle Hymn of Republic, When the Saints, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.” The seniors and volunteered drummed over 60 minutes and energized everyone! Reflective comments from the group included: “WOW, beautiful, Love, Marvelous, Energized, Ecstatic,and Wonderful!”
