What is Playback"

What is Playback? According to Shari Paltrowitz, founder and organizer of the group, "it's all about kids giving back to our community through music."

       Paltrowitz, a JFK High School senior, bassoonist, and pianist, contacted some of the best music students on Long Island. They came with instruments, voices and top notch skills to rehearse at Paltrowitz's home in Bellmore. The lack of power and heat from Hurricane Sandy never stopped them! The kids arrange solos, duets, and ensembles without help from teachers, schools, or professionals - all designed for performances at Assisted Living and other community centers. The kids share the passion of talented and giving young people.    

       "They're like little professionals," one Bristal Assistant Living Center resident observed.  

       "Bravo," another cried as residents tapped their feet, smiled, and hummed to the music that filled their hearts.    

       Playback performers come from local high schools and colleges, all determined to share their music.

Their next performances are at:  
Atria Senior Living Center, Plainview - Sunday, December 2nd, 3-4 PM

Bristal Assisted Living at East Meadow, Saturday, December 15th, 7:15-8:15PM

Guests are welcome to see the performance.
