Retired conductor David Dworkin is nearly 85 years old, but he’s as active as ever and doing his part to help other older adults remain active as well.

Dworkin is the founder of an exercise program called Conductorcise. It’s an aerobic workout, symphonic experience, and music history lesson all rolled into one.

We recently caught up with Dworkin at a senior living facility in Manhattan to talk with him about his program.

Our chat is part of WFUV's "Strike a Chord" campaign on healthy aging.
