Diana Perez has enjoyed performing around the East Valley this past year. As a Sun Lakes resident, she is especially fond of sharing her singing and piano skills at Sun Lakes Country Club 1 on the patio where she performs once or twice a month. She also plays at several retirement facilities, including the Renaissance right here in our beautiful Sun Lakes neighborhood. Although her schedule is very busy, she always finds time to donate her skills each year to a place she finds very special. For this year, she has selected The Perfect Place which is a wonderful daycare facility for the elderly. It is located on the campus of the Risen Savior Lutheran Church on Alma School Road. The residents are so excited for her performance that they are getting up and dancing to their favorite tunes. One gentleman told her that he had waited all week for her arrival. The response is so uplifting that there is no question that The Perfect Place is “perfect” for her charity this year. They love the ‘40s tunes, but Diana performs a variety of songs making her very versatile for her audiences.
Diana also participates in the Sun Lakes Chordaires Show Chorus where she sings lead and tenor. She is a member of the Arizona Classic Jazz Society where she often sits in and sings with the Jammers. This year, she performed in the ACJS festival at the Chandler San Marcos Hotel singing and playing piano with her trio.
Retirement has been better than she expected, because she is doing what she loves the most. Singing and playing the piano for our community is a gift that she never imagined would be so much fun.
