The South Bristol Cultural Center announces songwriter/physician Al Power will perform a concert of original and traditional songs – some touching on the themes of aging, elder care, and life's journey – from 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18, at the South Bristol Cultural Center. Tickets are $8 at the door.
Dr. Power has released his third recording, titled “Life Worth Living,” on his own Night Wind Music label. This CD, subtitled “A Celebration of Elders and Those Who Care for Them,” is an extension of Power's work as a geriatrician at St. John's Home in Rochester, N.Y.
A native of Rochester, Power attended the University of Rochester for undergraduate and medical studies, and studied jazz and classical composition at the Eastman School of Music with Rayburn Wright, Samuel Alder and Bill Dobbins. Power is donation a portion of the proceeds from each CD to The Eden Alternative, an innovative new approach to elder care that is sweeping the country.
This event takes place at The South Bristol Cultural Center located at 5323 Seneca Point Road, just north of the Bristol Harbour Lodge restaurant. For further information please call (585) 396-5950, or visit their Web site at www.southbristolculturalcenter.com.
