Harmonies for the Elderly, founded in 2010, is an organization of students of all ages who play music at nursing homes across Austin, TX. We incorporate aspects of music therapy while interacting with the elderly. To date, we have performed over 60 concerts at various nursing homes and have improved the happiness and health of hundreds of elderly people, including several Alzheimer's patients. We encourage musical participation from our friends, family, and general community. Music has the extraordinary power to bridge the gap between the youth and elderly populations.
