As part of expanding our programming to reach more communities, our Concerts for Wellbeing and Rejuvenation are already making a positive impact. While in Chicago for a performance on the Dame Myra Hess Concerts, the Thalea String Quartet gave a performance at the Southwest Regional Senior Center. The concert was a collaboration with Rush University Medical Center - Department of Social Work and Community Health.
“The seniors were thrilled to hear the soothing sounds of classical music live at the center” said Jewell Wilson, Regional Director, Senior Services Division – Area Agency on Aging. “We received so much positive feedback after the concert. Many of our senior center participants have never attended a classical music concert. The questions and answers segment was a wonderful gesture.”
More than 65 people were in attendance for the performance.
The Thalea String Quartet is the Doctoral Fellowship String Quartet at the University of Maryland. Winners of the 2021 Ann Divine Educator Award from the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the members of the Quartet have been celebrated for their innovative approach to education and community engagement. The concert was enjoyed by all.
