There's Plenty To Sing About At Prospect Park Residence With Year-Round Musical Programs

Brooklyn Community Chorus, Music Appreciation Course, Weekly Concerts Are Offered at Full-Service Senior Living Community.

Residents at the Prospect Park Residence, a full-service independent senior living community located in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, enjoy a well-rounded menu of cultural and social activities. It's all part of the active lifestyle at Prospect Park Residence, which features musical concerts, exercise programs, theme parties, and intergenerational activities with local school groups.

"We have something for everyone," said Director of Activities Theresa Hines. "Our combination of entertainment, recreation and education connects residents with their neighbors."

Music plays a big part in the weekly events schedule with concerts every Sunday. "Our residents enjoy a broad range of musical styles so we have musicians perform everything from classical piano and harp to international songs to show tunes," explained Hines. Other entertainment includes an ongoing lecture series on Beethoven that combines music with learning, a one-man band, and a keyboardist who leads attendees in song and dance numbers.

Residents recently enjoyed a concert by the Brooklyn Community Chorus, an independent community choir in Park Slope that has been performing at Prospect Park Residence for over seven years. The chorus sang a blend of American standards, swing, Latin and spiritual songs as well as tunes from the 1960's, including medleys from Broadway shows.

"We now do a sing-along portion of the show which is hugely popular," said Ethan Schlesser, co-director of the Brooklyn Community Chorus. "The energy level goes up and the room can't help but swing and sway. It really means a lot to everyone in the chorus to include Prospect Park Residence in its community." Schlesser also invites residents to share their own musical experiences from days gone by. The choral group, which performs twice a year at Prospect Park Residence, will return for a holiday show in December, and invites community residents to its public performances for free.

Prospect Park Residence is located at One Prospect Park West at Grand Army Plaza. The community features independent studio and one-bedroom apartments, some overlooking the park and others with views of the harbor and lower Manhattan. Residents receive housekeeping, laundry and linen service and enjoy amenities such as restaurant-style fine dining in a spacious and elegant dining room, a rooftop garden and easy access to all that Park Slope has to offer. The community also provides on-site licensed home care as needed and Essentia?, a program that offers support and assistance for memory-impaired residents by specially trained staff members.
