The New York Serenaders graced the residents of the Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center with a special presentation in the facility’s outdoor gardens. Founded by one of the residents’ sons, the performance took on added significance. The wonderful concert, including the popular hit “Baby Come Back to Me,” was enhanced by the beautiful colors and greenery of the courtyard.

The New York Serenaders are a doo-wop music group formulated in 2011 after a chance meeting in Washington Square Park. Ever since, the members have been harmonizing to popular sing-a-longs on a mission to preserve the fading genre. The group has gained popularity, serenading audiences at community events and private acts including for the New York Public Library. The show was a special treat for the Margret Tietz residents.
