Mizell Senior Center offers a variety of Music and Arts Programs. Our popular Wednesday Jam Sessions feature musicians both locally and from around the globe. It is a true Jam Session, so if you play an instrument, even if it has been a while, stop by and start Jammin’. Jam Sessions are every Wednesday morning from 10:00am to 12:00noon. Many just stop by to listen to this great group of musicians. Don’t miss it ….. our Jam Session is a must see in Palm Springs. On Friday’s, we feature The Dixiecats at 10:00 AM and Karaoke with Beth and Ferdie at 12:30 PM. You can stop and listen to great music, sing a song, or join others in dancing to the music and beat of the Big Bands.
If you are artistically inclined, our Pastel Art Class meets every Friday at 9:00 AM. All skill levels are encouraged to join and we even feature some of the artwork of class participants in the Noia Auditorium. Our Knitting Circle meets every Wednesday afternoon at 12:30 PM. Whether you are a knitter or have always wanted to learn, you can join this delightful group of knitters every Wednesday for tips, teaching and lively conversation. This group is free to members and $5 for guests. Those who crochet and do needlepoint are also welcome to join.
