Broadview at Purchase College Future Resident Meets Grammy Winner

Connection with Purchase College already paying off for Broadview Charter Member

When Prospective Broadview at Purchase resident Michelle Wiznitzer put a deposit down on a residence at the new university-based retirement community she knew she’d be connecting with the college, but she didn’t imagine it would be so soon.

Wiznitzer, who plans to move to Broadview when it opens in the fall, was thrilled when she recently got to meet Purchase College graduate and Grammy winner Samara Joy at a concert in Arizona. Samara Joy, a 2021 alumna of Purchase’s Jazz Studies program, received two Grammys including Best New Artist. 

“During the break she came out and met with everyone’’ said Wiznitzer. “I was able to get her to sign a copy of her Grammy winning CD “Linger On” and pose for a pic. I told her that I was moving into that new community in Purchase that they were building on the campus.’’

These are just the kind of connections Wiznitzer said she was hoping to make at Broadview. 

In fact, Wiznitzer said she was so taken with Samara Joy that she’s going to see her concert again in March when she’s in Seattle.
