AGING MATTERS radio program

12/10/2019 to 12/10/2019

2701-C Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201

Approximately 1 in 10 Americans over age 60 have experienced some form of elder abuse. Abusers are both women and men. In almost 60% of elder abuse and neglect incidents, the perpetrator is a family member. Two thirds of perpetrators are adult children or spouses. The consequences can be life threatening and sometimes fatal. On Tuesday December 10 at 2:00 pm on AGING MATTERS on WERA-LP 96.7 FM host Cheryl Beversdorf talks with Tovah Kasdin, Director, ElderSAFE Center, about what elder abuse, neglect and exploitation means for older adults and the role of the ElderSAFE Center to address this issue.

‘Twas the Night…Holiday Sentiment

12/14/2019 to 12/14/2019

1801 N. Quaker Lane, Alexandria, VA 22302

Join the all-female vocal ensemble, Sopranessence, for their annual holiday concert, 'Twas the Night...Holiday Sentiment. This concert will be filled with music from beloved holiday stories from characters like Rudolph, Scrooge, Frosty, the Nutcracker and Santa! Bring your whole family to share in the holiday fun! Discount tickets ranging from $10 - $20 are available through Friday, December 13. $25 tickets at the door. Tickets can be purchased online here: https://www.artful.ly/sopranessence. Sopranessence is an all-female ensemble dedicated to "rebooting Classical music" through performances that break the stereotype of classical music being stuffy and boring. One of the fun ways they do this is by unconventionally taking melodies, typically sung by one voice, and trading off musical lines like runners in a relay race. Or maybe they’ll “mash” together a classical art song with a pop tune and see what new story evolves. It’s all in having fun with music and bring you, the audience, along for the ride!
