6th Annual Second Spring Arts Festival is May 19th

The Second Spring Arts Festival features visual and literary arts and performances by seniors age 60 and older. The sixth annual Festival will be held on Saturday, May 19th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 209 Spruce St., in downtown Winston-Salem. 

This year’s theme, “Creative Aging: Music and the Mind,” shows how music can be medicine for your soul, spirit, and mind, with benefits ranging from memory improvement among older adults to stress and pain relief.  Research has found that listening to music or playing a musical instrument can improve the quality of life as we age. Music as preventative medicine is an exciting prospect — one that could change the way we live and age.

The opening welcome begins at 10 a.m. in the Mountcastle Forum’s Black Box Theatre. The keynote speaker is Dr. Jonathan Burdette who researches music’s effects on the brain.

Performing Arts:

1:00 Authoring Action

1:30 Shepherd’s Center Singers

2:00 Voices of the Children of God

2:30 Lawanda Lash and Dancers

3:00-5:00 Big Daddy Mojo

This year’s festival includes a full day of events that feature the creativity of seniors over the age of 60, including Visual Arts competition, Literary Arts competition, and entertainment.
