My Interactive Concerts Series finished this year’s cycle with a wonderful show in South Austin on September 15 at the Center for Spiritual Living. We are now preparing for next year’s concert series. As part of the “interactive” nature of this project, we actively encouraged feedback and ideas in the planning and promoting of the events, as well as at the musical events themselves. One consequence is that we decided to update the name of the project to reflect the goal of social inclusion of all age demographics. The new name is “Interactive Concerts for Creative Aging.” This emphasizes that everyone can participate, bringing their perspectives to the issues of aging and how music can add to our quality of life, no matter what age we are at.
In addition to the performances, we have been conducting video and audio interviews with people on he subject of music, aging, memory, and quality of life. The goal is to build an archive of useful and interesting material, for family members, music professionals and anyone involved in issues of aging and seniors. If any of that sounds interesting I welcome your involvement! Just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
