Serenade for Seniors is a collaboration between the St. Andrews Arts Council Outreach Program and Symphonette by the Sea. It is designed to bring the joy of orchestral music to those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy it.

The first Serenades for Seniors concert was presented on Oct 29, 2023 to an enthusiastic audience packed into the lounge at Quispamsis Parkland Seniors Residence. Residents were thrilled and thanked the Arts Council and the Symphonette for bringing this memorable night to their homes.

The second concert took place on Dec. 1 at Blacks Harbour Wesleyan Church and included a wide range of ages, including many local seniors. For most of the audience, it was their first ever experience listening to a live orchestra.

A third concert occurred at Portland United Church on December 8th.

A fourth concert is scheduled for April 2024 at the Passamaquoddy Lodge in St. Andrews.

Additional concerts will continue in 2024.

We would like to thank our sponsors for making this magic happen.
