Virtual Music Program Brings Healthy Brain and Memory Center Clients Together

Thursday July 2, 2020

Clients of the Edna Young Gordon Healthy Brain and Memory Center have a new way to stay connected thanks to Abramson Summer Stage – a monthly virtual music program featuring performances by local musicians with a discussion session afterwards.

Our first concert, held June 26th, featured local classical guitarist Andrew DiGiandomenico. His performance took clients through a history of the guitar, starting with the Renaissance period all the way up to modern music with The Beatles “Here Comes the Sun.” Afterwards, Andrew led a conversation about classical music and the guitar, asking and answering questions from the audience.  

“Abramson Summer Stage is designed to be an interactive experience between the performer and our clients,” explains Katie Reilly, MSG, care advisor. “It is a great way to help our clients remain engaged and connected with the community as we continue to social distance. And music has been shown time and again to have many benefits for those with memory impairments. We’re excited to be able to bring this program to life.”
