ARTZ Notes:

Come together through music

Through ARTZ Notes, we invite you to come together with other participants to listen to music, make your own, and engage with each other and the performers.

ARTZ Notes features music and experiences as diverse as our participants (all of them online for now) These include live performances paired with conversations, interactive improvisation and sing-alongs, and conversations and movement around pre-recorded music of all genres.

Program Details


Program Dedication

ARTZ Notes honors Carl Duzen, our long-time community member. Carl and his wife Susan joined the ARTZ community in 2015 shortly after Carl had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. Carl and Susan both loved music; they often hosted small, intimate concerts for friends in their living room. On April 16, 2020, Carl passed quietly from the earth. His legacy, however, is everywhere in the ARTZ Philadelphia community and we are honored to launch this program in his memory.

Funding

We extend our gratitude to ARTZ Philadelphia community members Maggy Carney, Nora Dougherty, Kitty Farnham, Nadine Flexer, Kay Moon, and Peggy Williams who donated to ARTZ in memory of Carl, to create a new program in his name. ARTZ Philadelphia has also received vital support for the launch of ARTZ Notes from the Fox Chase Bank Charitable Fund.

What People Are Saying


  • ARTZ Philadelphia programs allow me to spend quality, enjoyable time with my husband. There are so many things I have to do now. There are also fewer and fewer people that we can spend time with. ARTZ Philadelphia gives us a comfortable space just to be together and with others who understand.

    — Maggy C., Care Partner
  • Both Carl and I had a great time today. He said the following, verbatim, referring to you and ARTZ "…how wonderful it's all been….it's really changed me, given me an opportunity and a sparkle that I didn't have before. If there weren't this [program] I do not know what I would have done.

    –– Susan J., Care Partner
