On Oct. 15, The Jewish Pavilion will get it's "groove on", bringing the community together with their new fall festival, MUSIC FEST 2017 in memory of Inez and Teddy Snyder, with all proceeds benefitting Orlando's elder community. Get into the groove for this fall music event featuring local super-talent including Carol Stein, Michael and Ben Kramer, Barbara Jones, Cantor Jacqueline Rawiszer, Penny D'Agostino, Walter "Sky" Goldstein, and Paul Stenzler showcasing styles from jazz to Broadway.

Music Fest 2017 takes place at 1:30 p.m. at Lake Brantley High School, 991 Sand Lake Road, Altamonte Springs. Join in for live music, vendor extravaganza, refreshments and prizes! Go to http://www.jewishpavilion.org for more information and registration.

This first -time event offers an afternoon of healthful pursuits including music, socialization, and a vendor extravaganza featuring dozens of healthful living options. Vendors and Sponsors will be exhibiting in the Lake Brantley Cafeteria, adjacent to the auditorium before, during the intermission, and after the concert. Enjoy the acoustics of the modern and spacious Lake Brantley High School auditorium.

While music has often been thought to improve one's mood, according to Johns Hopkins experts, listening to music can offer health improvements, too, decreasing stress and benefitting memory. Medical researchers note a song from the past can bring back a specific memory from that time when the music was played. "Music Fest" event chair Shirley Schoenberger can attest to the healthful benefits of music as a frequent volunteer at the Jewish Pavilion's Monday "Happy Hours" at Savannah Court Senior Living Community in Maitland, which includes a sing-along from the traditional American songbook. She often brings along grandsons, Noah and Jared, so they too, can benefit from the multi-generational experience. Schoenberger commented, "It is amazing to watch an elderly resident suddenly perk up when they hear a meaningful song from their past. For that moment, that resident appears focused and fully engaged. It is a pleasure to share their joy as they reconnect with their community and their past, through the gift of a song."

"If you're looking for an afternoon of entertainment that also provides a sense of fulfillment, then Music Fest will be music to your ears," noted Schoenberger. "Not only will there be food, friends and, outstanding musical entertainment, health-care and community vendors, and much more, but all proceeds will benefit the Jewish Pavilion, which seeks to strengthen community ties for the elderly (of all faiths) in long-term-care."

Tickets to the event are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 per child. To purchase a ticket or to become a vendor or sponsor, visit http://www.jewishpavilion.org or call 407-678-9363 for more information.
