Florida Intergenerational Orchestra Presents FREE Concert “Meet the Music” @ The Lady of Lourdes Church
Feb 25 @ 3:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Florida Intergenerational Orchestra Presents  “Meet the Music” FREE Concert  Bring your favorite stuffed animal friends including but not limited to Teddy, Snoopy, Elmo, Kermit, and Lambchop    Boca Raton, Florida-The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra is set to celebrate its 2nd concert of its 13th season in Boca Raton, with a FREE concert sponsored by the MGN Family Foundation called “Meet the Music,” to be held at O’Shea Hall on the grounds of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, 22094 Lyons Road in Boca Raton, Sunday, February 25th at 3 P.M. with a pre-concert talk at 2:30.  The concert will focus on teaching children about the orchestra and participating in the program, but will also be of special interest to adults.  We blend the talents  of musicians ages 9 to 99 which promotes the idea of “Successful Aging Trough Music” and better relationships between the generations. The mission of the Florida Intergenerational Orchestra (FLIOA) is to bridge the generation gap with music and musical performances. Our unique environment encourages, nurtures and promotes closer relationships between the generations, with musicians currently spanning the ages from 9 to 99 and constantly changing. The Florida Intergenerational Orchestra is divided into two orchestras, the 65-member symphony orchestra, and the smaller 25 member chamber orchestra, that rehearse separately but also perform together. Now in our 13th year, the Florida Intergenerational Orchestra remains Boca Raton’s best-kept secret.   The orchestra’s founder and conductor, Lorraine Marks-Field, recently came upon an article in a well known newspaper entitled “Never too Old.”  In it was expressed the notion that 40% of adults say they still sleep with their stuffed animal by their side.  56% of our so-called adults still own and held onto their favorite stuffed animal for more than two decades. And 72% of those people said they plan to keep their stuffed animal forever. So for our February 25th Concert, “Meet the Music” we encourage all of the young and “older” children to bring their favorite stuffed animals with them, whether it be a Teddy Bear, a dog, a cat, or in Lorraine’s case, Suzie Doozy and Lambchop. Not only will you be admitted free but there is no charge for the puppets, or stuffed animal friends.    The orchestra will celebrate the magical afternoon with excerpts from “Carnival of the Animals,” “Sing a Rainbow,” “Frozen,” “Beauty and the Beast” “Over the Rainbow” and much much more.  A special guest performance from ventriloquist, Dan Christopher, with his puppet friends, should add another delightful surprise.   The orchestra will once again offer for a $5 donation to our 501c3 , its own coloring book, “Let’s Color the Music.” This beautiful coloring book was prepared by Lorraine and her husband Bob in conjunction with the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and vividly explains the instruments of the orchestra in a delightful and informative way.  Also on hand will be celebrated children’s author, Glori Mulligan, with her new book.  Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.   “You know we always try to be vibrant and welcoming to our audiences,” said Lorraine Marks-Field, the oft- celebrated conductor of the orchestra for her work blending the generations.  “This concert is one I am really looking forward to because it will be glorious to see our seniors and our children all having so much fun together. “We have a 99 year-old triangle player, Mel Lazerick, and a 9 year old violinist, Rachel Fader. Mel recently wrote to FLIOA and  in his note he said,” The triangle has given me new life.  I love it.” “ Mel had never played an instrument before, but now loves coming to rehearsals and participating in our concerts.  Conductor Lorraine Marks-Field says “This is one of the reasons I do what I do.  And by the way Lamb Chop is also looking forward to meeting all your friends of the same ilk, or should I say silk.”    Once again Vince Zabik will be singing and you never know who else may show up at one of the concerts.  I suggest you be there for a fabulous, and enjoyable afternoon.   If you would like more information about the orchestra, or to schedule an interview with Lorraine Marks-Field, our conductor, or to consider joining the orchestra, please call Bob Field at 561-482-8206 or e-mail [email protected] Check out our website at www.flioa.org.  Visit and like us on FACEBOOK

Being a Man of Power. Dropping the old paradigm of time and money @ Panera Bread
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

For centuries men of power have dominated through his use of money and time. Building his empire meant winning, to provide for his family and have success. Now, with the old paradigm of power falling away, a new model emerges. Power that brings value, service, cooperation, collaboration and family values to the forefront. System and structures that are designed to hold health, physical, mental and emotional as essential, and financial wealth in the form of non attachment to money. As you drop your old beliefs about time and money, how you earn it, what status it brings you, how much more of it you have or don’t have, how limited you are with it, you free yourself from the shackles of the past. In this new found freedom you hold the power of creativity. Creativity gives you self expression, integrity and truth to work from a place of value, worth and service that is not limited to time and money. This new system and structures is needed now at the community level where we embrace opportunity, and change building a world where our children reap the true benefits of living healthy happy and free. Join Monica Heiz, Priestess of Passion for this workshop: Understand where your sticking points are. Where has your creativity and self expression stopped, limiting your resources. Learn how your beliefs and actions are limiting your relationships with the feminine, your wives, partners and significant others Reconnect with your values, what fuels you to show up, be accountable and make your mark in the world. The goal of this workshop is to bring awareness to points of power a man in business is underutilizing and affecting his relationships, especially with the women in his life. The results is to move men into new actions from a place that is in line with his values and come from creativity, self expression and love. *** a beverage of your choice will be provided coffee, tea, iced tea or ice coffee

Sound & Scent Meditation @ Holistic Organic Wellness
Mar 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join Joan Costa every Thursday at Holistic Organic Wellness for a community meditation that merges aromatherapy with guided visualization, crystal harp, and Reiki energy healing.

Crystal Healing has been around since prehistoric times. This form of healing was also known as laying on of stones, and has been used by many cultures throughout history.

The Crystal harp is made of crystal tubes which have been tuned to the Chakras at a frequency of 432Hrtz. The sound and vibrational frequencies of this instrument are not only pleasing to the ears but soothing to the mind, body and spirit.

Chakras are brought back into balance, and peace and relaxation are experienced. The atomic structure of crystals is geometrically perfect. Because of this, crystals have a very stable vibrational rate. Due to their stable vibrational frequency, when placed in our auric field, they are able to stabilize and raise our vibrational frequencies and bring balance to our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual states. The Crystal Harp is a beautiful instrument that facilitates this sense of peace, balance and wellbeing.

Joan Costa is a certified crystal healer, reiki master, and magnified healing practitioner

Stephanie Cimino is a certified second generation aromatherapist and energy healer
