Shimabukuro will also use the concert to stress the connection between health and music. It will be held at 2 p.m. on May 27 and pre-registration is required.

“We could all use a little more music in our lives. AARP studies have shown that music can help to reduce stress, boost mood and inspire movement. Music can also encourage social interaction through activities like singing, dancing and performing together.”
