Music Can Heal!

inter-generational program

The article below is about a University, a music program, and a senior living community joining forces to provide music for two specific age groups. In the article, founder Micheal Levine states that the original idea was to bring music to seniors. But he expanded his idea to help students connect with adults and perform live. He coordinated this with Sunrise Senior Living.

We can suggest many different topics for our lectures, and here is one great example! 

The History of Radio City Music Hall

Nicknamed the Showplace of the Nation, it was for a time the leading tourist destination in the city. This lecture focuses on the unseen areas of this amazing theater, looking at the famous Wurlitzer organs, the hydraulic stages, and the art deco architecture. The venue is notable as the headquarters for the precision dance company, the Rockettes. We also view footage of the famous Christmas Spectacular and starring the Rockettes.


Here is a CBS video that gives a brief history of Radio City Music Hall
