A couple of weekends ago we had the wonderful opportunity to attend a concert at a senior living facility when we visited our daughter, Sarah, and her husband, Eric, and his family in Georgia. Eric's four siblings have been giving concerts for a number of years and are scheduled monthly to present an hour of music for the residents at Sunrise.
While Eric was with Sarah at the hospital, we took a break from the medical scene and were delighted to have the chance to attend! As you can see, this was an upscale assisted living facility: Quite a large number of residents were gathered to hear the music. We all mingled a bit and talked to various folks as the musicians readied themselves for their themed presentation on Songwriting Duos: Abby started the musical afternoon with a piano piece titled It Might as Well be Spring by Rodgers & Hammerstein: Abby's brother, Alex, played several classical pieces on piano...a top-notch performance: Hannah joined Abby and Emma to sing a hymn written by Fanny Crosby and William Doane, Rescue the Perishing, for the group: Emma was featured playing a violin concerto that she's been practicing for an end-of-school-year recital. It was wonderful!: And what's a concert without an accordion added to the mix? Alex on accordion, Aaron on penny whistle, Abby on piano, and Emma on violin playing My Favorite Things, also by Rodgers & Hammerstein: As the concert came to a close, all the residents and guests joined in on God Bless America.
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to attend such an excellent and well-planned concert, and it certainly was apparent that the musicians played for an appreciative audience!
Thank you, everyone, for an enjoyable afternoon in Georgia!
