About Us > Mission Statement
This Nonprofit Organization is designed to bring music and stories, energy and imagination into Senior Day Centers, Hospitals, and Living Centers. In doing this we hope to reach out through music and close age gap barriers, creating an open environment and a truly joyous atmosphere. We strive to give them an experience to look forward to, a chance to connect with each other and an opportunity to share in an enriching event. Seniors will be exposed to young Musical Theater professionals working here in New York, and therefore benefit from the quality and professionalism of a “Broadway” performance within the comforts of their current living arrangement.
Seniors will be greeted by each performer at the beginning of the performance. Each performer’s mission is not simply to entertain the group, but to form personal bonds and tailor each experience to the taste, history, and emotional temperature of each and every senior in the group.
The singers will Serenade and encourage group participation in singing, clapping, or dancing to the music. Requests can be made as well! A focus on repertoire that is important to the group in a personal way allows for meaningful interaction between performer and senior, a mutual understanding of experiences that can lead to a greater sense of community and joy.
Discussion is always encouraged during the performance as well as time and attention given to the seniors to connect and interact with the performers and musicians after the performance is over. Our hope is that the experience that a group of seniors has on a particular day of the week carries through to the next six days and that, by undergoing a communal experience, internal relationships at the senior center can strengthen and grow. Social, physical, and emotional barriers can begin to break down. Ultimately, the project should foster a sense of hope in both the young and old. It should cultivate an enthusiasm for the future in whomever participates.
