Photo Flash: SING FOR YOUR SENIORS Brings WICKED Witches to Calvary Cancer Hospital

On September 30th, 2013, Sing For Your Seniors hosted one of its Broadway Sessions with alumni from both Broadway and the National Touring companies of Wicked for the patients of Calvary Cancer Hospital. Check out photos from the event below!

Executive Director Jackie Vanderbeck explains, "Sing For Your Seniors' Broadway Sessions bring the essence of a particular show to a community of people that would otherwise not get the opportunity to experience the wonderment and thrill of Broadway because of their physical health or financial need."

Performers included Daniel Torres (WICKED, EVITA, THE WOMAN IN WHITE, THE PIRATE QUEEN), Anne Brummel (WICKED), Libby Servais (WICKED, LYSISTRATA JONES) with Kristin Rosenfeld (SPRING AWAKENING MD 1st Natl Tour) on piano. Patients and their families, nurses, doctors and staff enjoyed a one hour session of songs that the performers chose along with many of the hit songs from Wicked. A meet-and-greet visit with the cast followed after the performance.

Sing For Your Seniors, Inc. is a non-profit organization that uses music to change lives. We provide senior citizens with immediate and long-term benefits through musical enrichment in adult day centers, in hospitals and in living centers. Our seniors build ongoing relationships with talented young Broadway and Broadway-bound performers as they connect through music. Our volunteer performers get to "give back" as they share their talents with enthusiastic audiences.
