We plan to perform in areas of need such as senior centers, nursing homes, RI hospitals, public libraries, etc.

The Healing Through Music Project began as the Haven UMC Youth String Chamber Orchestra to provide healing music for the soul to the vulnerable and in crisis in the local community. The project served as our concrete missional practice and was expanded into a free music school at Haven UMC.

Ensemble students learn and master new skills through the classes. By performing for those in need of healing in the local community through various genres of music, students gain self-confidence, improve self-esteem and grow their interpersonal skills.

Our project reaches out to vulnerable groups such as people in nursing homes, addiction support groups, the homeless, and those in the hospital by offering them healing, recovery, empowerment and hope through music.
