Background

CADENZA is an acronym for “Celebrate their Accomplishments: Discover their Effervescence and Never-ending Zest as they Age.” In classical music, a “Cadenza” is an extended virtuosic section, usually near the end of a movement concerto. The word is used figuratively to describe the apex of one’s life and celebration of a lifetime’s accomplishments.
