Medical researchers note a song from the past can bring back a specific memory from that time when the music was played. "Music Fest" event chair Shirley Schoenberger can attest to the healthful benefits of music as a frequent volunteer at the Jewish Pavil- ion's Monday "Happy Hours" at Savannah Court Senior Liv- ing Community in Maitland, which includes a sing-along from the traditional American songbook. She often brings along grandsons, Noah and Jared, so they too, can benefit from the multi-generational experience. Schoenberger commented, "It is amazing to watch an elderly resident suddenly perk up when they hear a meaningful song from their past. For that moment, that resident appears focused and fully engaged. It is a pleasure to share their joy as they reconnect with their community and their past, through the gift of a song."
