The Tony awards for Broadway shows will be presented on June 7. The residents of The Jewish Home at Rockleigh are already in the mood, having just performed a concert titled A Century of Song.
The concert took place last Thursday, May 14, and included many songs from award-winning musicals from 42nd Street to Les Miserables.
Many decades were represented in excerpts from Fiddler on the Roof, Damn Yankees, The King and I, Annie, Man of La Mancha, Cats, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
The Jewish Home at Rockleigh, Russ Berrie Home for Jewish Living, is a state-of-the-art, kosher, skilled nursing facility. Situated on a breathtaking 16 acre park-like setting, the 180 resident facility offers exceptional care to its long-term care residents, those suffering from dementia, and those in need of respite care, hospice care, sub-acute care, speech, physical and occupational inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation.
Below is a video clip from the concert, with the residents singing Can You Feel the Love Tonight from The Lion King. Here is a link to the playlist if you would like to hear all of the songs.
