No matter your age, learning never stops. As we grow older, we are constantly developing new skills and finding out more about the big and beautiful world we live in. That is why Spring Creek Senior Partners (SCSP) is determined to provide various arts and cultural enrichment programs for seniors. Their latest initiative, Concerts in Motion, which is funded by the New York Foundation for Elder Care (NORC), brings high quality musical performances to senior centers around the city.
On April 6th, SCSP’s multipurpose room was jam-packed with excited attendees as they watched two violinists and a cellist unpack their instruments. The trio of professional musicians serenaded the audience with a beautiful repertoire of classical music, worthy of a Carnegie Hall performance.
“The mission of Concerts in Motion is to provide the service of live concerts to homebound, hospitalized, or otherwise isolated individuals throughout New York City. Quality of music performance is a high priority: The 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. Likewise, CIM’s youth performers are musically talented, and CIM fosters relationships with private music teachers and with teachers at public, private, parochial, and charter schools to ensure that the youth involved in their programs are performance-ready,” said SCSP Director Theodora Ziongas.
In addition to the performance at SCSP, the group of musicians surprised three homebound Spring Creek Towers’ residents, so that they can spread a bit of joy into their day. “The seniors really appreciated this meaningful performance,” Ziongas said.
