Marilyn Zeidner, always on a mission to help people, is now focusing her efforts on Music on a Mission, a non-profit organization that believes music can heal, foster cooperation, and improve physical and mental health.
Music on a Mission takes the proven benefits of music to people with different needs.
Some of its music programs are for young children with disabilities. Additionally, there’s a choir for older children who might have challenges that would normally prohibit their participation in a choir. Other music and dance programs offer enjoyment to adults with developmental disabilities and some enhance the lives of adults recovering from mental illness. A non-traditional drum circle, choir, and a 4-piece band all go to various memory care communities and hospitals. And there’s more…
Project D.R.E.W. (Delivering Restorative Energy to our Warriors) is named after army veteran Captain Drew Ferguson who died by suicide. This program of songwriting with soldiers is a healing, therapeutic experience for veterans that is meant to be a healing tribute to and for them. Veterans are invited to contact Music on a Mission to be included!
Barnegie Hall is a renovated barn that is now a music venue hosting invitation-only concerts to support all the music programs.
For more information about music and dance programs, Barnegie Hall concerts, or Project D.R.E.W, please see the website of Music on a Mission.
Marilyn believes that she, as well as her volunteers and staff of Music on a Mission, have been divinely inspired to create this phenomenal program that touches so many lives in such positive ways. And the gratitude Marilyn offers is heart-warming.
