Whenever I hear a Broadway song, I think of my favorite volunteer, Elaine Paonessa. She is musical director of the Van Bloem Singers, a group that does more than 30 shows a year at service clubs, volunteer organizations, church groups, senior residences and healthcare facilities.
I saw them entertain at a local rehabilitation facility and I can assure you they left the patients smiling.The group is seeking new members. If you love to sing Broadway and popular tunes, and are available to perform between noon and 3 p.m. weekdays and occasional weekends, give Paonessa a call at (818) 845-6851.
Rehearsals are from 7 to 9 p.m. each Monday in the chapel of the Burbank Salvation Army, 300 E. Angeleno Ave.
