This week the amazing Alena Quintet performed for our patients and family members. The group played classical arrangements by Mozart, Menken, Brahms, and Kimura. There were over 30 patients and family members in attendance. The patients had the opportunity to create art, with the assistance of RIC’s art therapist Violetta Woznicka, concurrently during the performance. Patients reported that the synergy between the live classical music performance and the painting activities was amazing. This is just one of the many unique ways the Therapeutic Recreation Department enhances the patient experience at RIC. We are thrilled that the Alena Quintet will return for a second performance in July.
