Fort Wayne Philharmonic @ Byron Health Center Eakin Family Room
Apr 3 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Byron Health Center will to host a group from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic on Wednesday, April 3rd, starting at 3:00 p.m. This group is usually a quartet or quintet of a specific section of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. Arrangements for the appearance are made through a partnership with Audiences Unlimited. This Community Program allow residents and team members to get up close and personal with a few members of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic while being able to enjoy wonderful music in the comfort of home.

The program also encourages interaction and participation through singing along, dancing and clapping, creating smiles and sweet memories. Music takes the residents back in time. The feeling of yesterday – joy, laughter, precious moments shared with loved ones – comes back.

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic fosters and instills a lifelong love of symphonic music through performance and education by being one of the most vibrant, highly acclaimed and financially healthy orchestras in the country, assuring its position as the cornerstone of the regional arts community. It performs great art in the most excellent possible manner, and creates innovative programs across many styles and media, resulting in exceptional experiences for each individual as they are enticed, engaged and thrilled.

Audiences Unlimited creates cultural experiences that enrich the lives of people with limited access to the arts and inspires others to value a rich quality of life for all people. In 1972, Lillian C. Embick had a vision to bring joy and attention to people in nursing homes. With the support of her husband, Byron, she created a community-based non-profit arts organization that has reached more than 2.8 million audience members through music and the arts. 45 years later, her vision has blossomed into a nonprofit organization that serves Allen, DeKalb, Noble, LaGrange, and Steuben counties. From long-term care facilities to hospitals, Audiences Unlimited reaches those with diverse needs and abilities.
