Music at Primrose in Mansfield

Ed Piatt plays ukulele for residents

Mansfield, Ohio Primrose Retirement Community of Mansfield believes in many things: quality healthcare, independent lifestyles, convenience, security and definitely entertainment! As part of our social calendar at Primrose, each month is filled with a variety of musical entertainers such as pianists, vocalists, bands, choirs and more.

Just a sample of the variety of music that appears at Primrose include “The Backyard Band” that frequently plays in the Primrose Café, bringing their bluegrass sounds to all of the country music lovers. Dick Tobin delights crowds on the piano as he rocks the halls of Primrose with his rock ‘n roll and funky blues tunes. Becky Pittman, our most anticipated Music Therapist, brings her talents here every week. For Becky, we have to add the “s” to talent because she sings, plays the flute, the guitar and more! Additionally, for all the saxophone lovers, Curtis Chamberlain comes to Primrose with his amazing alto sax renditions of the most popular songs our residents grew up with. While it isn’t a popularity contest, the staff is fairly confident the ladies like Curtis more.

Some of the most recent additions to the musical entertainment catalog at Primrose came as a surprise when it was discovered that several Primrose employees are musicians! The residents pack the house to sit and listen to our wonderful housekeeper Janice play her guitar and sing with a country-twang twist. You never know what you might hear on the radio next – it could be “The Primrose Country-Twang Twist.”

Another musical newcomer at Primrose is Ed Piatt and his ukulele. While the spelling of this instrument is very difficult, listening to Ed Piatt strum along to songs our residents love is very easy. Ed’s beautiful tenor voice provides beautiful accompaniment to the sounds of his ukulele. It isn’t often you get to enjoy an instrument like this without going to a fancy beach somewhere.

At Primrose, we say “This is Living!” We believe in providing an active social life that includes entertainment like the musicians who appear frequently at our Primrose Retirement Community of Mansfield. Learn more about the worry-free lifestyle that can be found at a Primrose near you!
