All Present Song Circle Starting Up January 28 2016Most artists know that a performance is authentic when they can stay in the moment. Athletes too understand that power when they talk about "staying within oneself." It's that quality of presence in the moment that gives Elena Louise Richmond's song circle for Early Stage Memory Loss, All Present, its name and moving impact. "All Present is just that. It’s just for now," writes Richmond in her blog, All Present Almost Past. "It’s not for a performance later; it’s not to record and listen to. It’s just for that hour and a half when we sing and we can’t stop smiling at each other."
