In the coming weeks members of the orchestra will be invited to post their thoughts and reactions to rehearsals and the role that ME2 and/or mental illness plays in their lives. We hope you will sign up to follow the blog. Feel free to share your feedback any time.
After only eight weeks of rehearsal we already have 30 musicians actively participating – and more plan to join us in January! The members of ME2 range in age from 8 – 70+ and come from all walks of life.They are students, school teachers, professional musicians, health care workers and retirees. Some are unemployed and must put their daily focus on improving their health. Others are musicians who have expressed that ME2′s mission simply “strikes a chord” with them and they are eager to play music in this mutually-supportive environment.
Our first informal performance is coming up on Wednesday, December 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the North End Studios. There is no charge to attend and everyone is welcome. We’ll post more information about the program in a few days.
Thank you for supporting ME2/orchestra! You’ll be hearing from us again soon…
