Vineyard residents are invited to attend a free workshop on Friday, March 14, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the large dining room at Windemere Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

The session will demonstrate how music can provide relief from depression and anxiety, malaise which can be caused by the isolation of Island life during a cold, gray winter.

The workshop will be presented by Karen Wacks, a professor at Berklee College of Music.

This event is made possible by funding from the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank’s sponsorship of last summer’s Vineyard Vibes concert at Outerland.

To preregister, please call Dorothy Soquist at 508-696-6465, extension 735, or e-mail her at Please register early, as space is limited. Refreshments will be served.
