This spring, I played music with the Park Avenue Synagogue Teen Band at a Jewish Nursing Home. Many of the elderly viewers were sleeping or uninterested, but there was a group of a few of them who were smiling from ear to ear. By the end of the set, a majority of the residents were clapping and singing along. It made me really happy to see that by doing what I love (music), would give someone else joy. Nothing was better than seeing a bunch of elderly people who didn’t want to be there, end up really enjoying themselves. I also love that we entertained them, we gave them an hour to forget about any of their worries. It just made me really happy to see that our music made them happy too!
