"This repertoire has been specially composed to evoke fond memories of yesteryear by warming the spirits of older adults as part of our ‘Music to Go' Program," said Gretchen Lee, CVNJ outreach coordinator.
Created to enrich the lives of current and future music lovers, each uniquely designed Music to Go program incorporates interactive and entertainment elements. Whether performing in schools, parks, libraries or senior residences throughout the region, the goal of CVNJ is to advance classical music appreciation.
"The Allendale Community has emerged as a leading North Jersey venue and host of cultural and performing arts events and we are pleased to have Camerata Virtuosi on our playbill this season," said Mary Stampleman, ADC, Director of Therapeutic Recreation and Community Relations for The Atrium.
Based in North Jersey, CVNJ is a professional symphony orchestra dedicated to presenting the highest quality classical music performances. As a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, the group is committed to bringing the finest performances to local communities through the collaborative teamwork of internationally recognized musicians and world-class soloists. With its innovative and entertaining programs, CVNJ interacts with people of all ages and backgrounds and enriches the lives of community members through the power of music while educating the next generation of musicians and patrons.
Camerata Virtuosi of New Jersey was founded in 2009 by cellist Andrew Kim and conductor/bassoonist Byung-Hyun Rhee, who is the musical director. The first public concert was held in the main gallery of Korean Cultural Services New York last year, followed by an invitation to perform at the famed Naumburg Bandshell in New York City's Central Park. Today, CVNJ includes musicians performing a repertoire list, hailing from the Baroque period to the latest works of living composers, in many different combinations of instruments.
Developed in stages beginning in 1967, The Allendale Community for Mature Living pioneered modern-day eldercare. Today, the campus includes three full-service senior residences that offer a continuum of care, should a resident's needs change: The Atrium, Carlton Court and The Allendale Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center. The Community also offers a Short-Term Stay Program and respite services as well as the Senior Social Club, an adult day program.
Pre-registration is requested for the "Caring with Classics" performance. For more information or make a reservation, call Mary Stampleman at (201) 818-7979 or visit www.allendalecommunity.com.
