School’s residential gospel choir provides healing benefits from traumatic incidents

Share

Silver Springs – Martin Luther School has formed a residential children’s gospel choir. The children, between the ages of 6 and 14, participate in the Silver Springs Residential Treatment Program to assist them in healing from the emotional aftermath of traumatic experiences and other hardships and to improve their coping skills so they can reach for bright futures.

The newly formed choir presents an exciting opportunity for the children, to experience the healing benefits of music and a chance to build their self-confidence through a shared musical experience. The choir consists of 10 to 14 children, who rehearse regularly and perform at local churches and Silver Springs’ events. Their inaugural performance was at the 2016 SEPA Synod Assembly where they had the audience on their feet singing along! The children recently sang at the 2017 SEPA Synod Assembly in May.

Many of the children have expressed feelings of pride in their choir membership. Children who have previously been silent and sullen because of their life experiences have blossomed through their participation. Silver Springs is thrilled to be able to offer enriching activities like the gospel choir for the children in our care to help vulnerable boys and girls learn, heal, and reach for positive futures.
