Big News! I’m in the Movies!
Never Too Old is a new documentary depicting music’s power to enrich life for older audiences, and for the musicians themselves. This half-hour film highlights the power of music and explores the paths that led professional musicians (including me!) to perform for older audiences. It shines a light on MusicianFest, an initiative of the Music Performance Trust Fund, to provide free musical performances at senior centers and assisted living facilities in the US and Canada.
Watch the half-hour documentary in its entirety on the Music Performance Trust Fund website.
I appear around minute 19. Watch the whole documentary—it’s inspirational!
“Brava! The documentary really touched me…. we all can remember the music and songs of our youth and those memories bring forth a lot of good feelings. Bless you and your compadres for bringing joy to our generation!” —L.K.
