Andrew Lapp Returns!
On Thursday, July 30th at 7:30 p.m. we’re thrilled that pianist Andrew Lapp will return to Bay Village. We’ve watched Andrew grow up before our eyes as his first concert with us was when he was 13.
Now a Steinway Artist, Andrew received his degree in piano performance from Southeastern University in Lakeland and has appeared as soloist with the Venice Symphony and Imperial Symphony orchestra.
Andrew performs concerts nationally and has recorded a number of CD’s, which will be available for purchase after the concert.
You can hear Andrew and read more about him on his website, www.AndrewLapp.com.
The Lyric Arts Duo Returns!
We are happy to report that this talented duo is returning to the Bay Village stage! Arlene Stein, piano, and Allen McGill, cello, have performed here numerous times and have an exciting and varied program planned for you this evening as usual! The program for this night is hanging in the glass case by the gift shop. Mrs. Stein holds both a bachelor and master of music degrees from the prestigious Eastman School of Music. Mr. McGill is a Juilliard graduate and made his solo recital debut at Carnegie Hall. His eminent career has included performances with the Saint Louis Symphony and the New York Opera Orchestra.
We’ll see you on Thursday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium!

Thanks to everybody for participating in the Activity Program “Walk around Florida.” We all will have a nice memory of those days of “walking”/being active with the T-shirts that commemorate that event. I am looking forward to seeing you in the hallways of Bay Village wearing those T-shirts with pride.
In July, things are back to normal.
On July 15, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., we have Florida Surgical give a “Fall Prevention Clinic” in the card room, right of the lobby. They will help demonstrate the use of canes and the bases for the canes that makes them stand upright. They will evaluate your need for a cane and fit the cane for you. You can pay with cash, check or a credit card. Having the proper cane is important for your safety as well as for your posture and your balance.
Maintaining muscle strength with advancing years is critical to reducing the risk of falls—so is improving balance.
Noriko & Margot Perform!
On Thursday, July 16th at 7:30 p.m. we welcome Noriko Sidlow, pianist and Margot Zarzycka internationally recognized violinist from the Sarasota Orchestra who will perform for the first time at Bay Village.
If Noriko’s last name seems familiar, it’s because she is the wife of clown Chuck Sidlow, who we all know from his hilarious presentations he’s done for us in the past and his work with Laughter Unlimited and Circus Sarasota. Noriko studied classical and jazz piano while growing up in Japan and has been in the United States since 2006. She also plays the organ and worked for the Hammond Organ company performing live events for them in Japan.
At press time the full biography for violinist Margot Zarzycka was not available but as soon as we have it, we’ll hang it in the glass case across from the gift shop. Enjoy the concert everyone!
From the Dining Services Director
It is hard to imagine that half of the year has passed us by. Things are busy in the Dining Services department and my staff and I thoroughly enjoy providing all the Residents with a great Dining Services program. A very important part of that process is receiving feedback.
Your Dining Services committee members have met for the new year in June. This dedicated group wants to make sure that they represent you, the residents, in the best possible way.
We meet each month and review all comments made by the residents and discuss topics of interest. At a recent meeting, it was mentioned that not all residents are aware of the little nuances of the menu and what items can be ordered.
With that in mind, I have included as an insert in the Vibes this month a list of “Did you know” points of interest as it relates to the menu and what is available.
