Last night I presented “History of Motown Music” at the Bridgewater Library (one of many times I’ve presented there!) This presentation is a 40-minute bio, followed by 20 minutes live Motown music.

I was honored to work with Stephen Fuller (who actually was a warm-up act to Motown Recording artist, Stevie Wonder). Stephen Fuller brought the house down! Check out his website at: http://www.fullersounds.com/

Stephen Fuller works with me on two other presentations in the “Learn and Listen Series” — “The Life and Music of Nat King Cole” and “The Life and Music of Frank Sinatra.”

For more presentations that are available for libraries, assisted living facilities, senior groups, rotary clubs, Jewish Community Centers and more, please visit my website “about” section: https://peartreeenterprises.wordpress.com/about/

“Senior” Prom

Published April 23, 2015 by Maryanne

seniors in love

 

Today I presented “Senior Prom” at NJ Eastern Star Home (http://www.njeasternstarhome.com/).

“Senior Prom” is a program I developed to share with seniors the positive benefits of companionship, whether it’s a spouse, friend or family member. And how love/friendship ties in with other ways to take care of yourself including eating healthy, exercising, positive thinking and not smoking.

I had a wonderful time at NJ Eastern Star Home. It’s always extra special when residents tell you, “I love you.” I look forward to going back!

“Senior Prom” is a one-hour presentation available for libraries, assisted living facilities, senior centers, etc. For pricing and availability, please contact Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

Today was the last of my “Luck of the Irish” presentations until next year. This year was extra special as I had guest vocalist Carol Erickson sing a few Irish songs following my presentation. I’m thrilled to share that the Hudson View Care and Rehab Center (http://hudsonview.org/) gave both of us standing ovations!

To hear Carol Erickson’s lovely voice, please visit: http://www.carolericksonvocals.com/

Carol and I are available for assisted living facilities, libraries, Jewish Community Centers, senior groups and rotary clubs. In addition to “Luck of the Irish,” I’ve recently added Carol as a guest vocalist for my presentations: “History of Valentine’s Day,” “History of Motown,” “History of Santa Claus,” and “Holidays Around the World.”
