Residents at Bradley County Healthcare and Rehab Center were treated to Beethoven and other selections from the Masters on Wednesday, during a concert performed by the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Wind Quintet.
Activity Director Janice Allen said she and the residents "feel very blessed" to have had the quintet perform at the rehab center.
"The residents just love it," Allen said. "It's uplifting."
Allen said she tries to expose the residents to all forms of musical styles, but classical music seems to be the most popular.
During the lunchtime performance, the residents dined while listening to the quintet play selections such as Beethoven's "Minuet."
Allen, who has been activity director at the facility for 18 years, said this is the third year the quintet has performed at the rehab center.
Members of the quintet include Kristin Holritz, flute; Robert Burkes, oboe; Robert West, clarinet; Eric Anderson, bassoon; and Gordon James, French horn.
The quintet regularly performs at schools, healthcare facilities and libraries.
