How Tufts Music Reaches Out
The Music Department strives to make music accessible and enjoyable
for everyone in our community. To achieve this goal we have created
several ways to connect with our different communities. There is the
public community, the people of Medford and Somerville as well as
our student and alumni community. Our hope is to involve everyone in
our community who has a passion for learning and a love of music.
Music students or a group of students interested in providing a brief concert of
classical music to the memory care unit at Stonebridge in Burlington, an assisted
living facility. Please contact Tracey Meech,
Stonebridge provides musical entertainment, primarily old popular songs but it is
believed people would benefit from hearing Classical music. A small stipend is available.
A piano is set in the large living room, and could be used for performances.
