The world’s only classical music organization created for
individuals with mental illnesses and the people who support them.
Me2/ serves as a model organization where people with and without mental illnesses work together in an environment where acceptance is an expectation, patience is encouraged, and supporting each other is a priority. We host two ensembles: Me2/orchestra, a non-auditioned orchestra that rehearses weekly and performs 3-4 times annually at local and statewide events; and Me2/strings, a professional string orchestra that performs at the University of Vermont Recital Hall and consists of musicians from Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, and Quebec. Both orchestras give exhilarating performances that encourage dialogue about mental health issues and erase the stigma surrounding mental illnesses.
