“Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears – it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear. But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more – it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life. For them, music is not a luxury, but a necessity.”
Oliver Sacks (1933-2015) best-selling author and professor of neurology at NYU School Of Medicine
NCMP MISSION STATEMENT
Music connects us all; to joy, shared experiences and cooperation, which are essential for healthy communities, and ultimately a healthy planet.
We work with profit and non-profit entities, who share in our desire to provide events that support artists and enrich our community. We provide programs that make music education accessible to children in our schools. We believe that if we put music in the hands of our children, we provide a healthy way for them to relate and process what they are experiencing in their lives.
For adults, especially those who face issues of isolation, due to physical, mental health or substance abuse challenges, music is a safe, healthy place to go; To connect, de-stress and be uplifted. We provide support, accessibility and inclusion for those facing challenges in our community through musical events.
Music shelters, heals and is an essential component to wellness.”
