The Classics, a dozen-member troupe from Windham, entertain at facilities for seniors around southern New Hampshire, and their favorite audiences are the ones that include vets.
As the seasons change, one part of the show remains constant.
A trained music therapist, Danais said that sharing her knack of song with appreciative audiences "is truly the love of my life."
Nursing home directors interested in booking the performers can contact Danais at 540-7467 or via email at email@example.com.
