"Compassion, caring, teaching, loving and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power"

Jamie Sams

Visiting Artists

Since the folks we serve are no longer able to attend live performances, visiting artists bring their own special brand of joy and magic. Our folks love all kinds of performing groups and individual performers coming to share their talents. If you would like to participate in our live programs after isolation is lifted or provide videos for our YouTube channel, please contact us at artsheal@compassionateartists.org. You will also be listed on our website.


Musique Sur La Mer Honor Orchestra

All of our facilities get very excited when they hear “the kids are coming!”

Musique Sur La Mer Honor Orchcombines the best of two worlds: the joy of youth and wonderful musical performances.

Marcy Sudock brings her wonderful group of talented young musicians to each of our facilities monthly and residents appear from every corner to experience these lively performances.

They are currently creating videos to share on our YouTube Channel

Darlin' Divas



Darlin’ Diva: Singers Su Amsden and Joyce Dery both come from music backgrounds, studying music and performance in college and performing in various venues throughout their lives. Joyce was a church organist when she was just a teenager and Su began performing in kindergarten as a green bean in Peter Rabbit! They met in their church choir. They decided to join forces when they were asked to perform at a church function. And thus began the Darlin’ Divas!

The Divas perform at assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing facilities as well as senior centers, private parties, and at other events.

They love to sing the “oldies but goodies” and add fun and silly elements to their shows. Their motto is “Our singin’ style will make you smile!”
