Report from the April 10 Café
Thanks to Gemini for his great entertainment!
Please watch the slideshow, and you will get a taste of what the evening was like. As always, Gary Glazner hosted and welcomed everyone. Jack on guitar proved to be an excellent opening act (look out Eric Clapton) with his mom and sister on vocals leading us in a rousing rendition of “Proud Mary.” Gary interviewed Gemini, who kept us laughing with his story about his first performances in Central Park, and then he wowed us with ventriloquism and magic (birds really can disappear and rabbits appear out of fire!). As usual there was a delicious selection of snacks and beverages, this time with a carnival theme.
The Memory Arts Café is a new series of free art events for people living with Alzheimer’s disease, their caregivers and the general public and is co-produced by New York Memory Center and the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project. The series, which takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, includes light refreshments and the opportunity to chat with the guest artists.
