“Music is love in search of a word.” – Sidney Lanier
Senior man and younger man share LP records

How do you feel when your favorite song comes on the radio or playlist? Maybe it’s unexpected delight, comfort and happiness – or even a sudden burst of empowerment. Music has the ability to take us to our past, cope with grief and sadness and bring us to a different place with just a few short measures. It can even help with cognitive issues and ease physical pain.
