In the spring of 2016, I will perform with “Home Free,” a group of women and men who are receiving services through OPCC (formerly Ocean Park Community Center) at the Cloverfield location in Santa Monica. We will sing favorite songs, play drums, kazoos and other fun musical instruments to celebrate the completion of “Sing it Out Loud!” a 12-week program designed to increase well-being through creating and performing music.
There is already a percussion group at OPCC, and I’m very much looking forward to working with them and beginning this class in January! I have been wanting to develop this program since January 2014 and now OPCC has invited me to do it!
OPCC is an independent, community-supported organization formed to address the effects of poverty, abuse, neglect and discrimination to help people regain their independence and improve their quality of life. Check them out at their website and on Facebook.
