Community Building Between the Generations


The latest positive outcome of the collaborative efforts of the Somerville Council on Aging and Teen Empowerment is the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s choice to include them as a partner for the 2013-14 Symphony for Our City program. Each year, the BSO partners will up to 10 community-based organizations in the greater Boston area through an open application process. Being chosen as partners means that the Council on Aging and Teen Empowerment will be granted tickets to Symphony performances at Boston’s Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. Older adults and teens who may not otherwise listen to or appreciate symphony music will enjoy and learn about the music together. The first performance is scheduled for Friday, November 1st.

“Every time the older adults we serve do something together with Teen Empowerment kids, there is a positive outcome,” says Janine Lotti, Senior Project Manager at the Council on Aging. “When the Council on Aging learned of this application process, it seemed only logical to partner with TE and get ready for another rewarding experience.”
