"In addition to singing and performing, their volunteers spend time talking to the seniors and they love that. Some of our seniors keep coming to the office to ask when the group is coming back. SFYS brings hope and joy to a very vulnerable group that is often forgotten by our society."
Nieves Taveras, Recreation Director,
Encore Community Services
"SFYS brings warmth, love and dedication to their performances. Their music has the ability to capture attention and distract from negative thoughts and ideas. It helps to reduce pain, depression and anxiety. Their love and devotion to music helps our patients with their journey at Calvary."
SFYS Artist Freddie Kimmel

Our Mission

Sing For Your Seniors is a nonprofit organization that enriches lives through the universal language of music by bringing professional performing artists to the communities of seniors in need to entertain, foster intergenerational connection and create shared joy.

Who We Are

Proudly focusing our service to low-income senior communities, LGBTQ+ elders, veterans and those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, SFYS is an eight-time recipient of the Quality of Life grant from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and a member of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.

Virtual Sessions

Virtual Sing For Your Seniors Sessions are visits with one or more of our SFYS Artists via Zoom. Each session will include live musical entertainment along with verbal interactive engagement. Schedule a time to connect through the universal language of music!

SFYS Sessions

Sing For Your Seniors Sessions are customized to the particular needs of each facility so we are sure to make meaningful connections with the seniors we serve. With the guidance of a SFYS session leader, our professional performing artists and accompanist share forty-five minutes of songs and stories followed by a fifteen minute “meet & greet” social time, so we can build relationships within each community.

Broadway Sessions

Through our Broadway Sessions, SFYS brings the magic of Broadway to seniors who can’t attend the theater for physical or financial reasons. Thanks to grants from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, we’ve been able to bring cast members from over fifteen productions to seniors all over New York City.

"I’m happy to call some special attention to a very underserved and a very invisible group of people. Not just aging people, but aging gays and lesbians. It’s a very near and dear piece of the population that doesn’t get a lot of attention.”
Beth Malone (Alison in Fun Home) at the SAGE Center

Virtual Sessions

When the world shut down during the pandemic, we found a new way to reach our SFYS family via Zoom. The introduction of our Virtual Sessions program allowed us to continue offering music, joy, and connection during times of isolation.

Connecting with Seniors during COVID-19

The Actors Fund Home

You can write a quick note to a senior! The Actors Fund Home will print them off and share them with their residents. Your message will brighten a senior’s day by reminding them that someone is thinking of them.

SAGEConnect

Our friends at SAGE have launched SAGEConnect, a way for LGBT folks to stay engaged with the community while homebound during COVID-19. Sign up to either call members of the community or receive a call from a volunteer.
