Programs for Seniors and Special Audiences

Robin Greenstein does musical programs tailored for seniors and special audiences, including hospitals, nursing homes, health related facilities, shelters, special ed groups, psychiatric and senior centers. These programs include Sing-along to Standards, folk music, Patriotic programs and much more. Accompanying herself on guitar, ukelele and/or banjo, Robin sings in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew, Ladino and Yiddish. For many years she has worked for Hospital Audiences, Inc. performing throughout the five boroughs of New York City. More recently she has been performing for Music That Heals, which brings music to sick children in hospitals, homeless children and juvenile facilities. She has performed for Hadassah, Hatzilu, The Atria and The Hallmark at Battery Park City (upscale senior residence), Samuel Field Y in Little Neck, Mid-Island JCC in Plainview, NY and dozens of libraries in the tri-state area.

Robin has a B.A. in Music and majored in classical guitar. She studied American folk music extensively. Her first job out of college was working under a grant to do music research in Sephardic Jewish Music by collecting songs from NYC residents under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress.

Robin has sung the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden for the NY Knicks, was a headline performer for the Renaissance Cruise Line, played at Club Med in various locations, and spent 3 months singing at a theme park in Japan. She tours Europe regularly and her work with Martin Guitars took her to mainland China in October of 2002 where she performed in Shangahi and Beijing. She has a lot of experience working with all kinds of seniors, from very active to hospice residents.

She has released two CDs of original material, two CDs of folk and blues songs about women; and a children’s music recording. Her latest recording is a multi-cultural holiday CD entitled “Songs of the Season.”
