Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
A popular performer who brings smiles to the faces of the elderly at Atria Kew Gardens, a senior assisted living home, has been recognized with an award. Anthony Soriano, known to everyone as Tony, has been honored with the Exceptional Service Award by Atria Senior Living.
It would be hard to imagine life at Atria Kew Gardens without Soriano, or to find a resident who isn’t delighted to see him. As Atria’s music therapist, Soriano can be seen, and heard, entertaining enthusiastic residents with songs and jokes in popular programs such as “Play It Again, Soriano” and “Name That Tune!” He greets everyone warmly by name, and the affection residents feel for him is unmistakable.
A multi-talented musician with professional experience in everything from schools, senior centers and hospitals to Off Broadway theater, Soriano’s repertoire features a wide variety of songs from the 20′s through today, including standards, folk, country, rock, and original compositions. No wonder residents with a musical request are rarely disappointed.
In addition to his talents as a musician, Soriano brings stimulating discussions to activities such as Science Times, the Atria Men’s Club, and Café Atria. His many talents as a singer, musician, storyteller, wit, and all-around entertainer, as well as his years of experience in music therapy, combine with a gregarious and caring personality to create a very special individual.
One of New York’s leading retirement communities, Atria Kew Gardens is home to an active and diverse group of accomplished individuals, and features programming that provides residents with an exceptional senior living experience every day.
Atria Kew Gardens is located at 117- 01 84 Ave., Kew Gardens, N. Y., 11418, and online at www.atriaseniorliving.com, and is kosher under the Vaad of Queens.
