Lisa had been wanting to start a Seniors Chorus for years but was never able to find an underwriter. One day in 2007 Lisa walked over to the Battery Park City Hallmark, proposed the idea, and they said "OK, great!” They were the only Senior Center near the school that had a residential facility. Some of our Creative Arts Workshop kids went over that summer and collaborated with the seniors on their songs. The program was immediately popular and remains so to this day.
Lisa still goes in person weekly to the (now) Brookdale to teach. We now receive support for this program through the City of NY— thanks to councilwoman Margaret Chin.
Funds raised during The Event go toward free programming like our seniors chorus! Buy tix now ~ link in bio
