#arts4srs #artnstlou. We’ve been busy in St. Louis and, oh dear me, I’m behind in reporting in about a variety of special activities recently held. Catch up Time! ūüėČ

1) The Silver Stages December program was held on December 3. We had a wonderful audience¬†attend. They eagerly joined the combined Gatesworth and Covenant House Chorale in singing holiday tunes. We sat awe struck by some of the soloist’s voices…one person had performed with the Rockettes…I think she still could (yes, she was THAT good and youthful looking!) Robert Denison was the most marvelous artistic director. He was encouraging to one and all. It was apparent that each of the performers responded well to his tutelage.

2) “When I’m 64” A new class for freshman at Washington University in St. Louis held it’s end of semester poster class on December 4. This unique class, conceived and led by Nancy Morrow-Howell, MSW, PhD. Brian Carpenter, PhD, and Susy Stark, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA¬†invites freshman to image what the world will be like when they are 64. One of the course components involved the students, in small groups, visiting area public entities, i.e., Saint Louis Art Museum, the Missouri History Museum, St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE), MetroTransit – St. Louis, etc. The students queried leaders of these agencies and folks that were visiting on a variety of topics, of their own choosing, revolving around older attendees, older employees, and visions for the future. The results were presented in huge poster format and shared with all 75 in the class. It was knockout!
