Aphasia Choir Concert

WHAT: Members of Lubbock’s 15-member Aphasia Choir, organized by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Allied Health Sciences’ Stroke/Aphasia Recovery (STAR) Program, will provide a free concert for the community.

WHEN: 7 p.m., Tuesday (July 30)

WHERE: Quaker Avenue Church of Christ, 1701 Quaker Ave., Unity Center  Entrance

EVENT: Recent studies have shown that music, melody and rhythm, along with traditional speech therapies like cognitive linguistic therapy, stimulation-facilitation therapy, and constraint-induced language therapy can help people with aphasia and other language disorders.

Aphasia is often a result of stroke, head injury, a brain tumor or other neurological problem. The disorder is an acquired communication impairment that affects a person’s ability to express him or herself through speech and writing, and/or to understand the speech and writing of others.

A reception and art exhibit will follow the concert. For more information about the Lubbock Aphasia Choir, call (806) 743-5678.
