And while we're on the topic of healing . . .

Has a song ever lifted your spirits?

Or brightened your day?

Or helped you through a rough patch?

Morrissey (of the popular 80s band, The Smiths) famously sang: ". . . don't forget the songs that made you smile, and the songs that made you cry.”

While it’s true that music can summon sad feelings or memories . . . 

... it also has a tremendous capacity to heal!

So, come join us in celebrating the healing power of music!
