The Del Bergeson Orchestra provides the big band entertainment for the free ballroom dance held monthly at the Timbers. This month’s Thanksgiving ballroom dance will take place at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 in the ballroom at the Timbers of Shorewood retirement community, 1100 N. River Road.
The Del Bergeson Orchestra is one of Chicagoland’s most popular Big Band entertainers.
Members of the orchestra are 25+ year music professionals, each with a deep passion for music and entertaining. Several members are music instructors teaching at the university level.
“The Timbers’ ballroom dances are filled with quality music and contagious energy,” said Shelly Goggins, activities director at The Timbers. “The orchestra plays everything from the traditional Big Band melodies to today’s contemporary pop and dance hits.”
“Music is the soundtrack of our lives,” Bergeson said.
The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Residents, whose needs may change, are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate care.
