LITA LOVE IS THE ANSWER



Marin County non-profit LITA recognizes the benefits of music's 'universal language' as a way to connect individuals from all walks of life. Are you a student or an amateur musician looking to hone your skills in front of an appreciative, smaller audience? Are a you a professional musician who has some time to share your talent? Do you miss your choir days? Bridging Thru Music can provide you with opportunities to perform and socially connect with our older adult friends in their care communities bringing toe-tapping smiles and joy! Be part of this quality-of-life enhancing inter-generational program as a solo performer, part of a duo, bring in a band, small ensemble or lead a sing-a-long. Check out some of our volunteers on our Youtube channel. This a great opportunity to share your talents, and have some fun. We will provide all support and coordination. Contact Rob at rthomure@litamarin.org to get involved in this fun opportunity!
