Music as a tool to strengthen our communities.

Vasheti Quiros, Development Director, and Roger Pawley, President and CEO, presented an overview of the Snohomish County Music Project to our club on Wednesday.  They described the groups origins as the Everett Symphony and its transformation into an education, advocacy, and artistic center.  The "Music as Medicine" program was especially interesting.  Vasheti and Roger talked about the use of music as a therapetic tool for those with Alzheimer's, Dementia and other age-related disorders.  The Music Project has many other programs underway throughout Snohomish County.  See for information on all their programs.
