On Monday, February 12th, Spring Creek Senior Partners (SCSP) hosted the second in a series of four concerts scheduled for this year from Concerts in Motion. This organization performs live music for seniors as well as individual concerts to home-bound, hospitalized, isolated individuals throughout New York City. These professional musicians are top-level performers who play on Broadway, in the orchestras of Lincoln Center, or have freelance careers that take them to venues around the world. Concerts in Motion are not only an arts organization, but their goal is to foster meaningful connections through the medium of music.

These talented musicians, Shailah Edmonds on vocals and Jon Weiss, who also shared the vocals and keyboard while per-forming a variety of songs including some very popular reggae. The room was filled to capacity. Every-one was enjoying the music. Some attendees were moving and singing along with the music. A great time was had by everyone.

“We are very happy to have partnered with Concerts in Motion and grateful to the UJA/Sidney Solomon Foundation for their sup-port of this program which helps us bring wonderful musical perfor-mances to the seniors in our com-munity. The performances are high-lighting the diversity of our com-munity by focusing on music from many areas of the world. These include Latin music, Caribbean music, Swing, and music focusing on Victory Day, giving the op-portunity for the many groups in our community to learn about and enjoy the rich cultures of many of their neighbors” said Theodora Ziongas, executive

These four concerts are funded by a grant that Spring Creek Senior Partners received from UJA/Sidney Solomon Foundation which NORC received for the first time this year.
