Making The World a Better Place Through Music

Through Music Together, Gathering on the Green partners with music industry professionals to develop and offer programs that benefit our community partners. Using music as a tool to aid in education, healing, expression, appreciation, and positively impacting lives. Our goal is to excite people about the arts by exposing them to all aspects of the music and entertainment business. Our community partners represent all ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic groups.


In partnering with Balance Inc, we have developed four distinct experiences for the full spectrum of students and adults they serve, who have developmental disabilities. These four programs include monthly sessions of Music Therapy for K-7th graders and 8th-12th graders, as part of their after school program, as well as Music Therapy sessions for their 18+ adult day program. It also includes a “Night  Out”  series that combines a monthly dinner Balance hosts for adults living in their Community Supported Living houses and we present live music by local youth musicians.
