Most of the guests in the home also teach young visitors in their different fields, by giving violin, piano or clarinet lessons, in Reg’s case it is lessons about opera.

Just as the recital is about to start, the director of the home is amazed at the energy displayed by the guests of the home, for whom the idea to rehearse and play before an audience brings life back to them, leading her to the conclusion that old age and art go together.
