Saltbox TV, a production company and AVOD streaming service for older adults, formerly led by Ed Asner, has partnered with Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation’s largest choral organization for adults over 55, to bring virtual music programs to older individuals.
The companies have joined forces to offer Encore Creativity’s online Encore University to those living in retirement communities and at home. Encore University is a multidisciplinary arts enrichment program facilitated by top performers and educators to engage older adults in the comfort of their homes.
“In my 20 years of performing in senior communities, I’ve learned how important music and the arts are in their lives. Encore University is doing something bigger than they even know,” said co-founder of Saltbox TV, Patty Carver.
In addition, the companies are exploring future partnership opportunities to create exclusive content specifically for Saltbox TV. “Saltbox TV is clearly aligned with Encore’s mission, so we are thrilled with our partnership. Our joint efforts will further enhance the opportunities for older adults to engage in the arts, which is so important for their well-being,” said Joshua Vickery, CEO of Encore Creativity for Older Adults.
