Free Concert Performed
At Sunrise Assisted Living in La Costa
"Any noise you can make when you’re 83 [years old]
is good!" is how Bob Strause of Carlsbad feels. And he’s not only making
noise, he’s making music. Bob is one of the Greene Music Organaires
that performed a concert this past Thursday for the residents of Sunrise
Assisted Living in La Costa.
There were five performers total, all students of the Lowrey Organ Program at Greene Music in San Marcos (see above). They were: Bob Struase of Carlsbad, Betty Lou Finver
of Carlsbad, GeorgeRoos of Scripps Ranch, Dorothy Harbour
of Scripps Ranch, and Dick Roos of Oceanside.
The concert was performed on a Lowrey
Magic Organ Program is designed specifically for retirees to be fun,
educational, and therapeutic. Because the ten week program focuses on familiar
tunes, students learn quickly and make swift progress. Most of the students
involved in the program had never had a music lesson before starting at Greene
Music, and many of them did not have an instrument to play on.
The residents at Sunrise Assisted Living apparently had
as much fun listening to the concert as the performers had giving it."Today, science is just beginning to
prove what has been known since ancient time, that music can contribute greatly
to life quality," states Dr. Alicia Clair, Director of Music Therapy at
the University of Kansas.For more

Certified Music Therapist at Greene Music at 800-419-4770.
For those of you who haven't yet planned your vacation,
and if the stories we did recently on the Mississippi River Cruise and St. Louis didn't stir you, I thought I
would give you some ideas.You just
might want to visit one or more of these places:
Hell, Michigan -- If you've always wanted to see hell freeze
over, visit this place in winter, when the HighlandLake dam often gets icy enough to
stop the water flow.In summer, when
temperatures are moderate, the town has a "Satan's Holidays" festival
and a road race called "Run to Hell."In October is the "Halloween in Hell" Celebration.The town got its name in 1841 when George
Reeves, an early settler in this low, swampy place in southeast Michigan, was asked what he thought the
town should be names."I don't
care," said Reeves."You can
name it 'Hell' if you want to."
Noodle, Texas -- In the late 1800's, Texans
often used the word "noodle" to mean nothing, which is exactly what
they found when they arrived at this locale near Abilene.Now there are two churches, a store and an
old gin.For nearly a century the
population has held steady at about 40 people.
Zap, North Dakota -- A Northern Pacific Railroad
official, in charge of naming settlements on the line, named Zap after Zapp, Scotland, because both places had coal
mines.The city, about 15 miles south of
Lake Sakakawea, encompasses one square mile and is home to about
