"Sing from the Heart -- Musical Memories," the next concert in the Arts for the Soul music and fine arts series, is set for 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at First Presbyterian Church, 840 S. 17th St.
Featuring the First Presbyterian Choir with conductor Dr. Brian Pfoltner and pianist Dr. Charles W. Ore, this year the popular dessert concert and charity fundraiser takes the theme of “Musical Memories.” The music will feature a number of popular pieces that will take the audience back to awaken musical memories from the past, as well as make new memories for the future.
Popular jazz vocalist and Lincoln resident Jackie Allen, along with local jazz musicians Hans Sturm on bass and Tom Larson on piano, will perform jazz standards that will bring a smile to your face.
The evening will be a charity fundraiser for Music & Memory, a nonprofit organization that brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, improving their quality of life.
Music & Memory trains nursing home staff and other elder care professionals, as well as family caregivers, in how to create and provide personalized playlists that enable those struggling with Alzheimer's, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.
