Moving On Up!

Music for Seniors launched July 1, 2007 as a program affiliate of FiftyForward, a long-standing and outstanding Nashville-based nonprofit recognized as the premier provider of innovative and comprehensive services for adults 50+ in Middle Tennessee. We will forever be grateful to Janet Jernigan, FiftyForward’s Executive Director, and to the entire staff of this fine agency. Believing in our vision, they offered Music for Seniors a solid foundation of nonprofit management skills, fiscal oversight and wise counsel, while also providing us immeasurable opportunities for wide-spread community exposure, funding and recognition.

July 1, 2014 marks another beginning for Music for Seniors as we start operations under our own 501(c)3 IRS designation as a stand-alone nonprofit arts organization. We move forward with our exciting work benefitting from the experience we have gained over seven successful years. From a start-up program enlisting three musicians to deliver a monthly performance to two senior centers, to a robust operation scheduling and delivering an average 57 performances - through outreach and public concert events - to over 1,200 seniors monthly at 50 area locations … Music for Seniors continues sharing live music and lighting up lives!
