Film: Andrew and Wendy (with discussion to follow)

March 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

As shown on PBS, this 30-minute documentary film tells the story of a New York Upper West Side couple at a crisis point.  Andrew, in a medically induced coma, is not responding to anything, and his prognosis is frighteningly bleak.

Wendy’s inspired idea to play Bach for him actually brings him back, a miraculous outcome even his doctors acknowledge. This remarkable love story analyzes the mysterious healing power of music as Andrew returns to the ICU at Beth Israel Medical Center to bring music to its desperately ill patients—not for entertainment, but for healing.

Also sponsored by the Friends, admission to Andrew and Wendy is free.

  The “Magic of Music” is a four-part series during March at the Cazenovia Public Library.  Don’t miss celebrated musician Samite Mumondo, two highly- acclaimed documentary films Alive Inside and Andrew and Wendy, as well as a class “Creating a Playlist.”
