An Ocean Star resident’s exceptional piano playing skills are proving to be a great asset to the residence and are helpig to create a cheerful atmosphere in the communal area. Colleen Loton, better known as Dawn to fellow residents, friends and family members, has been playing the piano since she was six years old and over the years she has acquired an extensive repertoire of songs.
Dawn, aged 82, used to play regularly at concerts in Western Australia, especially in the Bunbury area, and for a while was a member of an active band which held its own concerts.
She can frequently be found behind the piano, entertaining others with her wide repertoire of songs and both residents and staff love to join in for a singalong. Her piano skills also come in handy when it’s time to celebrate a fellow resident’s birthday!
