The Music of Our Lives

Plans are already underway for next year's Boomer+Troupe production, "The Music of Our Lives." (Feb. 2018)

Striking out in a new direction from the first two Boomer+ Troupe productions, "The Music of Our Lives" will combine music with personal memories and narratives that all reflect a variety of life passages.

Think about the impact of music throughout your own life. A melody can bring back stirring memories of a first love, a broken heart, a shared laugh with a best friend or a wild adventure. It can put us to sleep at night or help us get the house cleaned! Music touches all of our lives in so many different ways!

Auditions for "The Music of Our Lives" will be on Sat., Nov. 11 at 3 p.m. at The SPACE, located at 92 Sunny Brae Center, Arcata. Bring a song and/or a 1-5 minute story! No previous experience is necessary … but you do have to be older than 50! Please call 707-630-5013 to be on the audition list.

If interested in auditioning a story, "The Music of Our Lives" prompts will be available Oct. 25 from story director Tracey Barnes Priestley. You may e-mail her at If interested in learning more about writing stories to be shared, see Tracey's class, "Music... & the Stories of our Lives" in the fall OLLI classes.
