  Mary WilcoxMonday, March 10, 7:00 p.m.A Song Just For Me: Stirred by Music to Conversation and Compassion Channing House, 850 Webster St, Palo Alto  These stories are based on Mary Kiki Wilcox's 12 years of volunteer work in the health center of her senior community, where she takes recorded music, on a CD player, to the residents in the Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities. They listen together, as a group, in their weekly "Mostly Music" sessions, or individually, in their rooms. Mary has a wide selection of music to share, ranging from classical to popular standards and show tunes. Her listeners talk--about whatever comes, whatever moves them. What Mary sees in the faces of her neighbors as they listen to the music, and what they choose to talk about, touch her deeply.
