Ventura Townhouse residents were thrilled with a standing-room-only performance from the HarpWorks Ensemble this past Saturday afternoon! HarpWorks Ensemble was founded in August 2016 by Michelle Whitson-Stone, a professional harpist. Michelle has performed for many dignitaries and celebrities including Presidents Clinton, Ford, and Reagan, as well as Henry Mancini, Bob Hope and Quincy Jones. She is well known for her pop arrangements of “What the World Needs Now,” “Moon River,” “The Very Thought of You” and more.
The ensemble has played at many venues during its four years, including the Motion Picture and Television Fund, and a public concert for the American Harp Society Chapter of Santa Barbara. Seeing seven harps/harpists in one location was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many!
My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
