Project Playback and the other three recipients of The Future of Good award were given the opportunity to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, December 22, 2016. See below for the Facebook Live interview conducted on the floor of the NYSE after the closing bell.
Connecting Generations Through Music
Project Playback uses music therapy to bring back the memories of nursing home residents suffering from dementia. We create personalized playlists for each individual, each including music deigned to have the most effect on their mental, social, and emotional heath. But this project is so much more than music therapy. The connection that residents form with students is almost as powerful as the music itself. Click Here To Learn More...
