Meet the Sharp Players (video)

Nov. 15, 2017

It’s Friday afternoon at the Sharp Alison deRose Rehabilitation Center, and the sound of piano chords and happy singing fill the patient-family common room.

Each week, the Center is transformed into a stage for the Sharp Players, a choir of more than 20 former and current patients who, through song and dance, celebrate the challenges and triumphs of life following a catastrophic illness or injury.

The group includes survivors of brain and spinal cord injury, stroke and serious disease. Throughout the year, they perform for residential nursing homes and senior programs around San Diego.

The group was started more than 30 years ago by Richard Green, a licensed clinical social worker at Sharp Rehabilitation Services, who was looking for a way to inspire his patients and boost their confidence.

“They’re so supportive of each other, and they have so much fun,” Green says. “For some of our members, it’s one of the best times of their week.”

Watch the video above to learn more about the Sharp Players.

For the news media: To talk with Richard Green about the Sharp Players for an upcoming story, contact Erica Carlson, senior public relations specialist, at erica.carlson@sharp.com.
