Music Apreciation in the Old Folks' Home

   Almost every time I try something serious at the old folks' home,it ends in chaos.  Nevertheless I tr again.

   Because they needed something on the activity schedule, and because there is no staff here on week ends, they put "Music with Chuck" on the Saturday schedule. The old folks are used o hearing my keyboard in the morning at Fun And Fitness. I play background music for exercises.

   But for this session I have chosen THE HARP. A keyboard allows you to substitute any instrument into a recorded number  So for tomorrows session, I will change all the numbers into harp mmusicBetween numbers I will tell what little I know about classical harps. 

   It will be a music appreciation lesson.  The trouble is that attendance in NOT compulsory and my audience will soon escape.  Wouldn't you stay to hear how a Sousa march sounds played on a harp? 

   I will report tomorrow.

Yes, Chuck, I would.  I hope that you had an appreciative crowd, whether of one or many.  I'm sure when you get to Heaven, that God will welcome you into His band, too.  Thanks for spreading joy, trying to enliven.  Sometimes, chaos is okay, eh?
