Seniors Connect at Home
Older adults are among those most impacted by the devastating effects of the current global pandemic. Months of social isolation and canceled or postponed programming are taking their toll. In response to the continuing isolation so many older adults in our community are experiencing, we are excited to introduce a new program that will bring the HPO to older adults in their own homes, over the telephone! Hosted by Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte, Seniors Connect at Home will consist of monthly fun and engaging talks about the eras in classical music featuring performances by HPO chamber ensembles.
To participate, please fill in the registration form found below the program schedule.
