seniors savor solo standards
While most of the world takes it easy in August, for Ran it was a busy month. One highlight was his August 31 afternoon show at Goddard House, an assisted living center in Brookline.
Ran played a set of popular songs, including “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Embraceable You,” “Take the A Train,” and “Dancing in the Dark.”
Sensing there were some aspiring vocalists in the audience, Ran took several requests for singalongs after his prepared set. Residents belted out “And the Band Played On,” “Summertime,” and “Girl from Ipanema.”
Ran also was featured in the Goddard House newsletter.
Along with this show, two other events we told you about last month — the open forum on Shostakovich on August 15 and the Ran & Friends concert at Rutman’s Violins on August 24 — went well. Thanks to everyone who attended or participated in these events.
