Botsford Commons Senior Community Concert

The Botsford Senior Community (http://www.botsfordcommons.org/) was originally home to The Michigan Hospital for Crippled Children.  Construction began in 1919.  Albert Kahn designed the facility with his characteristic red brick, slate roofs, and arched doorways.  Pewabic Pottery tile inlays of children playing are found around the buildings.  In 1969, the buildings were converted into a nursing care facility, and in 1984, Botsford Hospital acquired the property.

The senior community now has facilities including condominiums and apartments, assisted living, and skilled nursing.  They also provide community events such as concerts.  We were pleased to be asked to perform for the residents and the community.  We played some classical selections, medleys from musicals, as well as pieces such as ‘The Entertainer’, Cheek to Cheek’, and ‘Goodnight Irene’.  Thank-you to the concert coordinator!  Everyone seemed to enjoy the performance.
