Ensembles in Long-term Care Centers

In partnership with Audiences Unlimited, Philharmonic ensembles provide community oriented performances in long-term care facilities to enrich the lives of people with limited access to the arts. This form of social interaction brings joy to community members who cannot attend events.

Over the years, ensembles have reached thousands of seniors in countless performances at nursing homes and long-term care centers throughout Northeast Indiana.
